Monarch caterpillars

I have one milkweed plant in my yard. I have been seeing monarch butterflies visiting it, and a quick look yesterday revealed some eggs. This morning when I went to water it, I saw there were more than eggs. Several caterpillars. This evening I counted 9. Some of them will undoubtedly find their way to other milkweed plants at school and/or the arboretum.
