it's not easy being green

my favorite moment of irony this week? the 50,000 paper crafts that came home for earth day. so for every tree that was planted in honor of mama earth's big day, about 10 were chopped down to spread the word.

Umm, rad. And true.

Isn't that the truth! Every year, our kids come home and tell us that we're doing something wrong.
like saying that we shouldn't cut down down any more trees ever, and then we remind them that we have a wood burning stove in our house, and we cut trees to burn and heat our house (usually dead trees) in the winter, and remind them that there should be moderation in all things!
I think some teachers are teaching the kids to be extremists. Then you have the whole irony you pointed out about them making hats made of paper saying "save the trees!"
its a little crazy.
