In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
As I was subbing in 3rd grade today, I saw this little grass garden growing. I was happy to see they were still doing one of my 3rd grade activities while studying plants in the prairie habitat. The kids love to see the roots growing through the soil in the clear container. When the lid is on, they can see the precipitation that forms to provide water to their grass. And, as the grass grows they love giving it a 'haircut'.
