Happy Earth day 2013

It’s been too long since I have posted.  Last week was school vacation for the boys so I naturally was swept away providing them with plenty to experience. We went to the Cape for a bit and then we came back and did fun things at home which included a fun dig for dinosaur bones.

The boys first dig for dinosaurs!

My only suggestion with this dinosaur kit was that they should have told me how long it takes to actually find all the bones.  Each of  them took turns but I was left to bring us home and it was messy and rather time consuming.

Today is Earth day which is usually a really great time to remind the boys how much we are connected to everything including our planet. This morning when I dropped them off at school I reminded them it is Earth Day and Apollo said, “Mom, everyday is Earth Day (Can you say proud mommy moment?).

But this year, I celebrate with a heavy heart. A week ago today, tragedy struck our city of Boston and once again things will never be the same.  We are left with unanswered questions and deep sadness.  So today when I walk in my garden and watch the birds at my feeders, I will say a prayer for all those affected and for guidance to heal our hearts.
