i completely forgot to post that this week is Earth Week 2012 which leads up to this sunday, Earth Day 2012. and although i may not live the 100% green lifestyle, i still try to do my best to keep our beautiful world green. i teach my children to recycle, to not be wasteful (one of my BIGGEST pet peeves) and to treat their environments with respect.
so, i always feel a need to make Earth Week a little bit special. there are always earth cookies for school and a few earth-friendly projects i do with the kiddies. it's a great excuse to get outdoors, re-use things that would otherwise get thrown out and to take a trip down to the recycling center. the earth is a beauty of it's own, and i am grateful for that.
