James kept checking on them through out the day and loved watching them explore the plants. He got pretty good at picking them up and letting them crawl on his arms. One got on his face and he wasn't thrilled with that.
He also got to see some of them fly which was great because in the lady bug book we have it talks about their wings so he got to see some fly away. I love first hand looks at nature. Unfortunately he learned that they like to crawl on sticks and so he began "asking" them to get on his stick. This caused a few lady bugs to be squished, but he was trying to be gentle :)
