Kinsley rescued this little guy from being trampled during a game of hide and seek. The funny thing about Kaitlyn's love of all things bug related is that it has started to rub off a bit on Kinsley. Don't get me wrong, she still wouldn't touch them but she was curious and concerned enough to want to get a closer look at this caterpillar before moving it to safety. We've been very careful not to make her feel badly about her fear and not to push her into growing out of it. Only she knows what she is willing and able to handle and it is such a joy to see her blossoming at her own pace. She may never really like bugs, but that's perfectly okay too.
I would really like to add some field guides to our book collection, and maybe make some themed baskets to pull out for moments like this. If you have any good resources please let me know!
