    Accidentally cut off my last post.   This  was a great challenge and a lot of fun.  These are lessons  plan to share with  my children.

    Fourteen days down, one to go.  Can't believe how much of an environmental impact our team has managed in just two weeks.  I hope everyone will consider continuing these challenges throughout the year.

    It is a cold day in NYC today and we felt the difference in the heat setting at my home.  However, an extra blanket resolved the issue fairly well!  Two more days left to the challenge.  Time flies!

    Can't believe there are only a few days left to the Challenge.  Looking forward to keeping the good habits past October 28.

    Can't believe the end of the Challenge is drawing to a close.  This has been great fun!

    Good morning everyone!  Today is Day 7 of the Eco Challenge and we're almost halfway through.  Thanks to the beautiful weather in NYC this week, I've been thoroughly enjoying my daily walks and the wonderful sights in my great city.  Here is a photo of one of our many spectacular skyscrapers.  Go Skyscraper Squad!

    Didn't get a chance to report on Day 2, but followed through on all of my goals and feeling very proud.

    I love seeing the impact my daily challenges are making on the environment.  It spurs me to continue each day and think of even more ways to make a difference.
