Coastal Clean-up

September 25, 2010 is "Coastal Clean-up Day" and everyone is invited to help clean-up our beaches.  So, if you haven't signed-up to help out, go visit for registration and more information.  I'm taking our girl scout troop to help clean-up Imperial Beach this year.  Last year, I went with my oldest daughter's troop and we had a great time.  You won't believe the things we found in the beach. 

Let's do our part to help clean-up our area beaches!  The girl scouts also earn a very cute seagull  patch for their vest.

Since I am homeschooling my youngest daughter this year, I wanted to make her a very special bag to keep
her own notebooks and school stuff.  She picked out this very cute elephant fabric.
