Jesse Tree Day 2

We are a couple of days behind in our Jesse Tree because of a late start. Last night we read about taking care of the world that God created and discussed some ways that we could do that. One of those ways the kids came up with was picking up garbage outside. When we walk in our neighborhood we see A LOT of garbage on the ground. This is mostly because we are in the city and there are many student rentals near our apartment. This morning we had to walk to drop off our rent check about 8 blocks away. Before we left I armed the kids with plastic bags and we picked up garbage while we walked. We ended up filling 3 bags to overflowing. After returning to the apartment building, we went in the basement and sorted the garbage from the recyclables. I want my kids to have a mind for taking care of the world that God gave us.
