Making changes!

We made BIG CHANGES today in the Leonard household!

We are currently teaching Francesca about saving energy and recycling. So today we all went to our local Home Depot and purchase several energy star light bulbs (energy savers). Once we arrived home, she was so excited over our purchases...that the minute we walked into the door, we had to start the swapping process. I must admit...that I am proud to say that we are now using 99% of all our lighting bulbs as energy savers! (the only ones that we couldn't change over were our nightlight bulbs and our outdoor flood light bulbs). I never would have thought that Francesca would get so excited over a light bulb, but once we were done with changing every one we could...she couldn't stop jumping up and down, while clapping her darling little hands.

Cool!!! That is the way to do it...start early by modeling what is important.

We have the cfc bulbs but I am not putting them in the girls lamps - I am too afraid of them being broken and getting mercury in their rooms. But I've read conflicting versions of how much is in the bulb and if it is really dangerous...
