I have never seen our children stand so still. As I looked out the bay window to check on them, they were frozen in the driveway, eyes looking up, hands cupped. What in the world were they doing?
Something was up. Literally. Fluttering above their heads were six butterflies. The butterflies would dive down, touch the girls, and dart back up to the sky. Lily and Emmy just stood there, entranced.
They stayed outside, standing in the driveway, until dusk. Several times the butterflies landed on each of them, only to flitter away to join its companions. The girls were caught in the butterflies’ spell.
It was past their bedtime, but I let them stay outside just a few minutes longer. I didn’t want to break the Butterfly Spell.
