Did you know today is Earth Day?
Look what Abbey did with her Daisy troop this afternoon.
They each planted a tree! A pine sapling, actually. A couple of weeks ago, we made a worm habitat, and each of the girls got to add some of our fat and happy worms and some compost to their pot. They LOVED it!
Did you know that the first Earth Day celebration was April 22, 1970? Yep. And guess what? I wasn't even alive then. It makes me feel young to verbalize that. Anyway, we talked to the girls about taking care of our environment, and next week we're going to finish earning our green petal (our last one for the year!) when an environmental engineer comes to talk to us about recycling.
Sarah got a fun surprise in the mail today. One of her American Girl dolls, Kailey, has been in the hospital. Her poor arm fell off a while ago. Sarah showed it to her grandmother when she was visiting over spring break, and Mimi sent Kailey to the American Girl hospital for her. Kailey arrived home today complete with hospital gown, get-well balloon, and her arm as good as new. Sarah was elated! Thank you, Mimi. Daughter and doll are happily snoozing together right now.
It's been another good day...and tomorrow is shaping up to be fun too. Stay tuned for the question of the week...
