Bo is having a tough time grasping the Earth Day thing today. Every time I say "happy Earth Day" she thinks I'm saying "happy birthday." I keep telling her her birthday isn't until July but what in the world does "July" mean when you're 2?
To celebrate Mama Nature's big day anyway, we went for a long walk and collected fallen sticks along the way. Then we went home and made pinwheels using the sticks and yesterday's newspaper (I'm not done reading today's yet).
We're going to bring a couple of them to Magpie's doctor today (she has her six month checkup this afternoon) since pinwheels are the symbol of the big Our Kids: Our Business campaign going on right now in Spokaloo to raise awareness about child abuse.
So, here's to you Mama Nature and to keeping all kids loved and safe.
