Earth Day 2010 - a Pictorial Journey Through a Real Mom's Eyes

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Walking from Bebe Boy James' school to pick up two of the grandbebe girls ...

"What are you reading, buddy?"
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


A map!  OK, then, let's go get the girls!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

This is for you, Gigi!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

On to the park, which was kind of lonely and empty.

Gigi, you KNOW I'm not really in the mood for this today!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

Then Grandbebe Girl Amira's friends came:


and fun was had by all!



* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

 Grandbebe Girl Makayla made some new friends:


and she even got a 'flower':



* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

On the way home, a spot of urban beauty:

"But, Mom!  I just wanted to taste them to see if I could get the pollen and the honey out!":

Home again!  Craft time!  I wanted to make these:

with pretty little paper wrapped around the bottom to dress them up.  But .. WHERE did my seeds go?

Just as well, since I only had two soda bottles and ended up with three craftmakers.

So we decided to make these instead:

But they turned out looking like these:



* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

Pretty pathetic-looking.  But the children were pleased with themselves.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

I had a horrid mess of crayon shavings and what-not to clean.


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

So I used some toxic chemicals to make everything shiny and bright again.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

and THAT was our Earth Day!

Comments make me feel all squishy happy inside, so drop a line if you see or read something interesting! PLEASE don't leave links to your blog or page unless the post you're replying to specifically asks you to leave a link!
Sorry that I had to re-enable word verification, but without it, there was far too much spam coming in - the only other option would have been to require only registered (Google, OpenID, etc.) comments, which might require you, the commenter, to go through even MORE steps just to comment!
