Deed Ripples

Shelley told me about the ATVs killing turtle eggs.

I got angry about ATVs on the beach. You remember this from my two previous posts about it.

Katherine (6) asked me why I was mad about driving on the beach, and I told her about the turtle egg problem.

Katherine chewed on that for a week and decided to make a sign about it. She made three, two of which were incredibly great representations of the ATV/turtle egg problem. Better than any of my ideas.

One had a baby turtle lying on its back with Xes for eyes, and an ATV above it.

One had a mommy turtle out in the water, crying about her dead babies and an ATV on the beach.

Another was the baby turtle on its back again.

Katherine decided to bring her signs to school this morning and show them in front of the whole class and post them there. She told all the kids to tell their parents to stop driving on the beach.

Apparently, there were people visiting the school who are considering funding a better building for the school. Hopefully the next ripple is that those people do come through for the wonderful school here and build a better school building.

I am SOOOO happy about this. And I love Katherine even more.

    I'm so proud of her, and not just cause I'm her mommy, but because I know she really cares about something other than herself.
