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!
