This land is my land, this land is your land...the 4th of July is this weekend and to honor our country, instead of just enjoying this holiday as usual, we decided that we should do something to show our appreciation for the land we live in. We kept it simple today by picking up trash along a trail that we walk often on the way to the park!

We had done this before but having it near the 4th made is seem like it was for a purpose! It was a good lesson for the kids on taking care of the Earth that Jesus created for us and helped to reinforce what we do with our garbage when we're done with it!

My helpers were great and despite the heat, we completed our job with only one "I'm tired" complaint which was followed by, "me too!"

We did it!
