    Dear Justin and Cody,
    I think that it is very interesting that we are the only monarch way station in the entire East valley.I also really like your smile box. but I couldn’t see the monarch in the black and white slide. Was it hiding in the bushes?
    Anyways, I really like this blog post and all of the facts about butterflies.
    Sincerely,
    Claire
