Earth Day Clean Up!
Since Earth Day ended up happening over April break, we knew we would need to make time once we got back to school for our annual community Earth day clean-up!
We ended up getting lucky with weather... the sun was out and the air was cool... and the kids were funny!
Playing in the dirt pile before heading off to meet the rest of the clean-up crew!
Millie loves anytime at school when everyone gets to be outdoors!
Cutie-putie with her trash bag... ready to go!
We met at the Church lawn and headed through town picking up trash along the way!
It is always surprising how much trash you find when you are actually looking for it!
Heading to fish beach...
Lots of buoys and ropes to clean up!
Combing the beach for trash!
Lots of good helping hands!
Dragging some old wooden crates to the burn pile!
Margaret and I invented a point system for picking up trash. I would give her a gazillion points every time she found a piece! She sure had a lot of points by the end of our clean-up!
Our guidance councilor Jean joined us for our clean-up! It was great having an extra pair of hands!
Millie checked the water for trash... or at least that was her excuse she gave for swimming!
We found LOTS of trash down by the wharf!
Margaret was very helpful due to her ability to get into teeny-weeny places! What a great helper!
By the end of our hour long clean-up we had bags and bags of trash! Great job cleaning up our beautiful island everyone!!! And special thanks to Travis for picking up all our trash bags we left along our route!
