The school came up with an amazing thing called the Saturday Club. This is basically a group kids can join for weekly field trips. It's a neat idea because the students get to be with their teachers in less stressful conditions. No books. Just plain fun.
My boys have joined many of these Saturday Club outings, and for me, last weekend's was the best so far.
"Mimi, can we visit our trees when they grow up?"
"Of course!". I said with a smile, holding the Tree Adoption Certificates the Ecopark gave them. "You do have the adoption papers which give you full visiting rights."
To this, Kenji said, "Yay! I'm a daddy!
Environmental, enlightening, empowering.
Now wasn't that a well-spent Saturday?
