In the mean time, I've been trying to do my part for the environment. We've been buying organic as often as possible and recycling in our home. One amazing program our city runs is giving 2 maple trees to each household to plant! Wow! I called as soon as I got the flyer and ta-da we have 2 new trees planted in our yard. We then added a third, cause guys we have 3 kids now...
Wes and his little tree in our front yard.
I've also been trying the old fashioned clothes line! Note to self, towels come out really scratchy and tough and sheets smell yummy! It's not a bad deal. I ran 3 loads yesterday and only 1 actually made it into the dryer - Wes can't have scratchy clothes on his scrumptious skin!
I'm also proud to announce that it's been more than 2 months since I've used a plastic bag!!! I found these washable bags and I bought 2 and decided they were lovely but too expensive. So, I copied them and made a bunch of my own! They are cotton bags with a nylon lining plus a Velcro closure. The kids love them and they are easy to make! So far they have carried fruit, veggies and dried goods.
