Meet our friends, the milkweed bugs. We got them two weeks ago, when they were still in their eggs. The eggs were teeny tiny. They were smaller than a jelly bean, smaller than a grain of rice, even smaller than the tip of a pencil! They started out yellow, and the instruction book said they would turn dark orange when they were ready to hatch. But they actually turned red! We were super excited! We couldn't wait for them to hatch! We made some predictions about how they would look. Then, over the weekend, when we had a snow day, they finally hatched. We were surprised that they looked different than we thought. Check them out!
