Jenna's Arbor Day Foundation Membership

I don't get it but the minute she saw the envelope in the mail, she was enchanted.  She spent $10 of her very own money on a membership and read the brochure over and over excitedly extolling it's benefits.
 She chose the 10 flowering trees membership package and has been awaiting their arrival with great anticipation.

 They arrived yesterday afternoon and were kept in a cool place overnight.  This afternoon Mike came home with a tote full of compost to plant them with and the two of them went outside to create a nursery for the baby trees.

That's great that she was so excited! If only more people got that excited...

Hi Lizzie,
How precious that she spent her own money! I agree with the previous comment that I wish more people would be like that. If one public school class of children would plant 10 trees, just think of all the good it would do for the earth! Thanks for sharing this, I didn't know about the Arbor Day Foundation Membership.

Stopping by from SITS, thanks for visiting me!
