Earth Day

"We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors...we borrow it from our children."
~ Native American Proverb

The boys hosted their 2nd annual Earth Day party last week. We went with a "Lorax" theme because Max has been obsessed with the book since they read it at school this past month.  I figured it tied in with Earth Day nicely.

We also made "litter bugs" at the party.  The boys and I collected trash over the past few weeks to use for the project.
 We sanitized everything first :)

The kids were so creative!

These chocolate mustaches were the biggest hit with the kids, though.
Fletch was at the party too!
 Lettuce Turnip the Beet.
They got outside for some fresh air too since the rain held off!

Each of the kids left with a packet of seeds.

The boys and I also planted a tree together a few days ago.  Just a tiny little cedar tree.  I figure if we cut down one at Christmastime the least we could do is plant another.  Once it get's bigger we'll decide where to transplant it. 

I love to see the littles doing their part to make the earth a better place.
