"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Butterfly Garden

What a fun day we had with friends at the Butterfly Garden in Oviedo last Friday! Carson and I have been learning about God's creation the past few weeks, and the butterfly garden was a perfect place to visit to experience some of God's little creatures. The garden was so soothing and filled with fountains, plants, and butterflies! Carson and his sweet friend Kadyn were ready to look for butterflies. "You take these binoculars Kadyn, and I'll take the butterfly lookout map"... Carson and Kadyn both spot some butterflies! Beautiful butterfly... Carson couldn't wait to feed the butterflies in their butterfly feeding section. They have little cups of red powerade that you dip your finger in to feed the butterflies. Unfortunately, the butterflies were not too interested at that time. We moved on to the bird area where you can walk into a little screened room filled with finches. Carson was not scared one bit! They were flying all around us, and were fun to watch. Carson and Kadyn were really hoping one would land on their fingers. So sweet!! We headed to the park for lunch and playtime after our fun morning at the butterfly garden. We can't wait to go back!
