    Howdy! This article could not be written much better!
    Going through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept talking about this. I am going to send this article

    So many good ideas! I think you would be interested in this project that I will be doing with the kids in Ecuador at a free after school program where I will be teaching art. We are painting butterflies and making a display to promote butterfly conservation. Ecuador hosts 25% of the worlds species of butterflies so it extremely important to educate the kids about their conservation.

    This is a great list of activities. My 18 month old is obsessed with trees and flowers and all that good stuff (how not right?) so I’m looking forward to trying some of these with him. Thanks !

    I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog.

    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?

    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one today.
