Happy Earth Day

We didn't really do anything special to celebrate this time, but my daughter did color a special picture that she wanted me to share with all of you. 


I asked her what the stuff around the earth was, and she said "hair." (Much in the tone of "Duh!") I asked why she decided to give the earth hair, and she just shrugged and said "To be silly." So there you have it. :)

  3. Hi Melissa, (btw.....love your name!)
    Thanks for sharing your daughter's Earth Day picture. I got one too from my granddaughter who specifically dedicated it to me for Earth Day since I am always talking environmental issues with her. She's only 7 but it's really sunk in! It looks like your daughter is very eco-friendly, too! Great job.

    1. LOL - thanks Melissa. :) I LOVE it when kids make pictures or art projects to mark special occasions. (It just makes it that much more special.) Keep up the great work with your granddaughter!
