Earth Day

Today was Earth Day, and as chance would have it, Zane's class had a field trip to the local recycling plant this morning.

It was pretty fascinating to see how the whole place is run, and the kids all seemed to really enjoy it. I'm not sure how much Zane will remember, partly because he wiggled and squirmed the entire time the lady was giving her presentation. He's the wiggliest wiggler that ever was. But he was really interested in everything once we got to see the place from the walkways. Sadly, something was wrong with the machines, so they were down the entire time we were there - they turned off five minutes after we arrived and turned back on about 30 seconds before we were leaving the building. Unfortunate timing, but the giant bundles of recycled stuff was still pretty fascinating.
