We celebrated Earth Hour this year by reading our bedtime stories by candle light. Baby boy and I talked about how lucky we are to be able to turn on a light switch when we want to because not all children have that blessing in their lives. In a time when it seems our kids have access to and can get all they need and want, its good to teach them that it really is a blessing and one that we should be thankful for each day.
We visited Nan at Mount Tamborine this week. I love looking around her garden and admiring her beautiful gardening skills. The mountain air and green grass always cheers us up (at least from the drive to get there anyway).
