Earth Day 2011

The 8th grade Earth Day "Court"
Fiona playing the Orff instrument for her class performance

Singing an Earth Day favorite

Emmy doing an interpretive dance to Vivaldi's Spring

Singing the song that ALWAYS chokes me up:

"This Pretty Planet"


Earth Day every day North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Antartica, Africa, WHOO

This is just one of the many chants that our family has learned over the years from our wonderful librarian Mrs. Dee.

As a result of our school taking on such Earth friendly behaviors (i.e. going green), our kids encouraged us to recycle!! This is our 3rd year of actively recycling as much household material as we can. I personally think it is very impressive that a family of 7 can put out one to two trash bags each week!!!!!

We are doing our best to care for the Earth in our own little ways:)

Cloud watching

Derek just happened to catch Michael and Emmy laying in the backyard looking up at the clouds in the sky. It was one of those sweet, sweet moments where you realize how blessed you are to have children who are blessed to have siblings.

Jr. Gamma Phi

This year we had 3 circus performers in the Jr. Gamma Phi circus!! The kids did a great job and had so much fun!!! We are so fortunate that this is a program available to our family!!

Thank you Ms. Kim!!
