February 21, 2010 Day 98 Happy Day 100!

Today Endeavor and the crew of the STS-130 mission return to earth; in the cargo hold of the space shuttle, there is a small rearing chamber with the bodies of the 3 monarchs who lived out their lives aboard the International Space Station.

In our classroom, 4 out of our 12 butterflies are still living, feeding on Gatorade-soaked pompoms, stirring curiosity among our kindergartners. Though their scales have lost their colors and the edges of their wings are tattered, they are loved by us all.

Today we mark the 100th day of life of our monarchs across 4 stages of a complete metamorphosis!
