Yesterday we went and planted a tree at a school that needed some new shade trees. This school was about an half an hour away near where we used to live, and it started at 3:30. Bad timing for the Kid who never naps...unless we have a longer than 5 minute drive in the afternoon. Poor thing fell asleep and missed the first half an hour, but I made sure to secure a spot and a tree so he could plant when he woke up. The ground was SO hard, I had to have one of the men there get it started for us.
(Yes, that is me with the Kid. It's the 1st full body picture of me pregnant, and I don't think I look as huge as I feel!)
So proud of his little Red Oak.
Unfortunately, there is always an injury. In the 1st picture you see that little yellow rope behind the Kid. Well, I had stepped one foot on the other side to get a piece of garbage off the dune and when I stepped back he had moved to the other side of me and I literally kicked him in the head. The shiny stuff is 1st aide cream, because before I realized after that I actually scratched his head he was rubbing it with his dirty gloves. Nice. Right?
