"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

"It's Our Environment"

Happy Earth Day! We wanted to do something fun for our Earth Day celebrations so we're sending in a clip for the EPA YouTube project, planting a tree and cleaning up trash along our road.

Here's the best of the worst clips we shot last night... If you see the black boxes, just click on their small arrows.
Our bloopers were great but due to our slow connection I'm afraid to try to upload too much. Most were just plain silly, but... Wish you could see the last one that we thought was the best - upon viewing it was clear that Sarah had lost that lovin feeling - she scowled something fierce. Maybe it was just her concentrating...
Too bad.  Jack and the hen nailed their performances.   
sigh I guess that's what you get from a 3 y.o., 6 y. o. and bird brain on a windy night with a cardboard sign...

You're supposed to act like a sign is being passed around the world and, after saying "It's My Environment" indicate what you're doing to protect it... 
The kids said "That's why we eat local."   
Get it? ... EGGS, not the hen... yet

Hi Leslie! What a fun idea! I start a worm farm for my Earth Day project. Thanks for your kind comments on my blog.
