Happy Earth Day!

Today marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day!  The kids and I spent a little time yesterday digging into the EARTH.  It just feels good, you know?  Being outside in the sun, planting fruits, vegetables, and herbs to enjoy when the time is right, putting some color around us (I sure miss S. Africa's beautiful flowers that are all around!), working together and having fun at the same time.

Jeremy was not able to be present to help us, so Joshua sure took on the role of digging.  He looks so big with his shirt off!  Emma G's job was to put the plants in the holes and then help me fill it with compost.  She also insisted on putting the info card beside each plant.

The kids loved seeing the critters we encountered...especially the EARTH worms!  I think Emma Grace wanted to keep them as pets.

At the end of the afternoon, when we all had that great EARTHy scent, we admired our work.  Even Joshua commented that it looked good!

Hope you have a great day and get to dig around in the EARTH a little bit!
