:: But we did get to plant carrots, mostly purple with a few orange (at her direction).
:: Our Earth Week pledge, inspired by the Biomimicy Institute, to turn off the tv and get outside is going well. While we don’t watch much of our tv anyway, the commitment has sharpened my focus on my surroundings.
This week, I vowed to get out with my girls and do nothing but thoroughly explore a different outside space every day. Monday we were in our backyard, gardening, all day. Tuesday we picnicked at the edge of the Clark Fork River.
We spent our time talking about birds and rivers, mountains and the sun. Margot’s inquisitive mind absorbing how sand is formed, where water comes from and why it’s cooler in the shade.
And Ruby, well, I think we are all born with a deep and thorough appreciation for life, love, comfort and beauty.
All that reveling in our world led to a hilarious photo shoot.
The Biomimicry Institute is giving one of you a copy of Ask the Planet, an incredible, award-winning children’s cd. In their words, The music and lyrics in Ask the Planet are designed to reconnect children to nature, create a sense of awe for the environment and teach them about the concept of biomimicry.
For a chance to win the cd, simply leave a comment and I’ll randomly pick a winner on Sunday, April 25.
WHEW. Those were some epic nuggets! Happy happy Earth Week out there!
