Plant a Tree For Earth Day

Today, we planted a tree in my mom's front yard.

We wanted to give them a Dogwood, but we couldn't find one, so we went with a Redbud.

We all did our part (except for Scott, who was still at work). But the kids did the majority of the digging.

Some of us even did our tree-planting in style. I'm talking skinny jeans and heels.

We would have loved to have planted a tree in our own yard, but alas, we rent, and we didn't want to worry with all the fuss of getting permission from the landlord to plant a tree.

At least now my mom and stepdad have a little memento of us, for when we eventually move on to "greener pastures".

Saying that, I'd love to make tree-planting our little family's Earth Day tradition. Give back to the earth a little of what we take so much of.

Teach the children a little about sustainability.

And get in touch a little more with nature.

Happy Earth Day!
