Happy Earth Day everyone! For me, Earth Day is special because it falls right in the middle of National Parks Week- and everyone knows I'm a big fan of the National Park Service! This week, until Sunday, April 25, entrance fees to all National Parks are free! If you live near a National Park, you should take advantage of the celebration and go check one out.
The cherry trees in New York City are in full bloom right now, so everything looks like a fairyland filled with pink and white blossoms. Today was Take Your Kids to Work Day, so I joined my Mama at her work. Her office has a cherry tree in front, so I got to climb it and play with all the other kids. Did any of you go to work with your parents today? It was a fun treat to see where my Mama works, but I'm glad I'm a kid and don't have to go to work!
My special Earth Day outfit comes from etsy seller MissSissy. Isn't it lovely? It's a dress, but I had it shortened to tunic length, paired it with some grey leggings, and used a red sash instead of the blue one it comes with. I love the way the fabric is covered in trees and birds.
I am starting a new project for homeschooling- an animal journal! Every week, I will study a different animal, then draw and write about it in my journal. I'm having fun brainstorming animals to do. Could you guys do me a favor? List some of your favorite animals to help me get started. I'm thinking meerkats, fennec foxes, and red pandas will be some of my first choices.
Happy Earth Day everyone! Thanks for taking care of our Mother Earth with me!
