Recycle

Last night while Andrew was giving Ashton a bath, Ashton was talking about recycling.

"Daddy, sometimes Mommy just likes to throw things away but I think we could recycle them."

So, from this conversation, I am aware that I am not practicing what I preach. I do give myself a high five for teaching him about recycling and he knows the recycle symbol on products, but Mommy needs to do a better job of following through. Once the new house is finished, I plan on setting up a recycling center. True learning comes from doing!

Ashton is already practicing his recycling. Today he brought in a rechargable battery pack from a remote control car and turned it into an art project by gluing pom-pom balls and other craft supplies to it. He eventually turned it into a boat. I guess there are all sorts of ways to recycle.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!!!!!!!

Hey! Thanks for the comment on my blog! I would love pics of the desks and their prices if possible! Thanks so much for understanding...also I think you asked if we were free on Tuesdays and right now I babysit that morning. Mondays and Thursdays are our best bet. Maybe we could meet at a park and bring a sack lunch! Fun!

Yes, do you want to meet next Thursday morning at 10? Would you like to come to Huxley and we could do some trail walking as well.

I know one desk is only $25. I will get you some pics.

I love that he made his own recycled toys. Very clever!
