Our Earth Day Adventures





Happy Earth Day everyone, we began our day reading the Bible-of course- and read the parable of the mustard seed- how the smallest seed becomes the biggest plant- . So we planted some mustard seeds to begin our adventrues, it was storming out early so this was a goodplace to begin.





we decorated pots that came in a gift basket, from Grandmom Marge, and had a small snack:-)






filled our pots with soil.




and planted the seeds, now we will see the smallest seed become one of the biggest plants




we watched the clouds overhead and wondered at the beauty in a rain cloud- gods creation is awe=inspiring





we picked up trash on our street, we had wanted to do more but the storms blew through quite often.We ended the day muddy wet and chilly, so it was off to hot bubbly baths and hot coco.

that's great! we did really similar things. The weather was just weird, rain, sun, rain sun, finally we did go out and did a little trash picking too. Lucky we didn't stay long, as it rained again. hot cocoa for everyone.
