Catepillars and Inchworms

We found some cute bugs today. After Sarah told Eric about how to get the inchworm (take hold of the string that it's hanging from), he (very gently, I'm proud to say) held the inchworm for awhile before giving Sarah a turn.

Sarah named the two tent catepillars "Tenty". She explained that they have the same name because they're twins. (Works for me.) We gave them a drink with the spray bottle and fed them some cherry tree leaves. They must have been hungry because they started eating immediately. Very cool to see. I'd prefer the bug box over the tree, but I'm sure Tentys' friends will eventually find the tasty leaves.
