Earth Day is April 22, 2016!
Last Monday, my oldest daughter came home with a notice that her school will be focusing and celebrating Earth Day and, of course, asked many questions. Like any typical 5 year old, she wanted to know what is Earth Day and why will she be celebrating it at school for the week. I explained that Earth Day was a day to take time and acknowledge the importance of taking care of the Earth we live on. She really understood Earth Day better when I told her we were wishing the Earth Happy Birthday! and just like we take time out on her birthday to do cool things, we will also do that to the Earth. Of course, I reminded her that we should take care of the Earth every day, but Friday will be a day to celebrate keeping our Earth green and clean.
