"Mommy! Look how beautiful these are!" We're at a local greenhouse searching for flowers to plant on Earth Day. There are rows of beautiful, fragrant flowers. You can hear the light pitter-patter of the morning rain on the plastic roof.
Our daughter asks to pull the wagon that's starting to fill up with flowers.
I try to talk to her briefly about Earth Day and why it's important. She gets the basic idea. "It's a day to celebrate our Earth." she tells me. "That's right. And it's important to take care of our Earth because it helps everyone. The Earth needs our help to keep the plants and rivers and oceans clean and healthy." "And all the animals!" she adds.
I don't know if she quite grasps the weight of being environmentally conscious. We don't go into detail about the political side of things like global warming and the EPA. But I'm glad she's learning the basics of how to be a good person to the Earth from a young age.
The best way to change the world and make it cleaner for future generations is to teach our children how to care for the Earth.
This weekend we forced the kids to collect candy. Happy Easter
I was absolutely blown away by the artistry that went into the design and building of this massive cathedral. The way light is integrated into every nook and cranny in beautiful ways is incredible. I couldn't help but look up and stare in awe, just taking it all in.
See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me.
Of course there are kids playing soccer in the stone plaza outside the gothic cathedral in Spain.
That time I got stuck in Barcelona.

This guy was making huge bubbles for the kids running around outside the cathedral.
