Kittens are growing. Their eyes are opening. Each one seems healthy. The children love to pet and cuddle them. Mama kitty is busy nursing them and keeping them clean.

The caterpillars are growing. We are busy remembering to bring fresh bull thistle in for them everyday. We are contemplating taking them out and putting them on a bull thistle plant, then we could watch them from there.

Homeschool is going well. We are in our last push to finish up the school year in about a month.

My husband discovered that he could recover old photos of my camera's memory cards. This means that he was able to recover some of the photos from Joshua Tree National Park that had been lost! Amazing that you can do this. That means I can post some more desert photos when I have a chance.

The power cord for the laptop that I use for photos went poof this morning and sent out a spark. I wasn't able to start the computer after that. I will have to wait until this evening when my favorite computer repair guy gets home to see how badly things are damaged. Until he gets things working again, I won't be posting any photos.

But I may not be posting much anyway. I have many things to focus on, and they aren't all fitting in a day. Blogging is a lesser priority, so if you don't see me for a while, you will know I'm out doing something good.

And I haven't even started anything in my garden yet!

I'm so glad you finally posted. I've been wanting to know how your butterflies and kittens were doing.

I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures of both.

We have one week left of school, and we'll be done for the summer as well.

lots going on in my side of the valley, too.

And I'm not getting half the things done you are.

I'm commenting from the new computer today. Mine was almost nine years old -- it was well past it's retirement date.

There is nothing cuter than new kittens. I know my kids would love to have kittens sometime. What an educational experience!
