Happy Earth Day!

I have been waiting for "actual" Earth day to post this...

Colton had his 2nd grade program at school last week and it was about Earth Day. They sang a few cute songs and left us with a message about preserving, caring for and loving our Earth. He did a great job and so did the rest of the second graders. It is so funny that when you are a mom, your child singing a song about recycling can make you tear up. You know I did! ;)

This picture turned out blurry but I love that the whole time Colton was singing, he kept finding me in the audience and giving me a sweet smile!


Here is Colton with my nephew Graham. Let me just take a second to talk about these two. They are not just cousins, they are best friends. They are both in second grade and are only 10 months apart in age. They absolutely love each other! Sure makes every single family gathering super fun for these boys!!  (Colton is lucky enough that one of his other best friends is his cousin Landon who is just 11 months younger than him.) How awesome to grow up so close and bonded to your cousins!!!

Anyway, today is about celebrating Mother Nature's greatest gift so.....

Happy Earth Day!!!

What a great post! (maybe it's because I'm slightly partial to the two guys featured in it!)
I loved the program too!
Graham had warned up ahead of time that there was a really sad song in it...he was right! I totally teared up too.
