Daisies are like sunshine to the ground.” – Drew Barrymore

Green Daisies - daughters

Jason and Julie's Daughters

Stop and smell the daisies???  Although daisies really don’t have a fragrance, the idea of saving some time is sweet!  When you need to find some really special children’s clothing for your little one, or a great children’s gift, save some time and visit our friends at www.Green-Daisies.com.  Jason and Julia Pugh, busy parents of two little girls ages 2 and 4, started their online store to give other on-the-go parents the opportunity to access all the amenities of a neighborhood boutique in the serenity of their own home.

Julia was sitting in her garden watching her daughters pick daisy after daisy and it occurred to her that daisies bring simple happiness to life.  The name Green Daisies seemed unique, and it reflected their goal of creating a store that offered an exceptional, high quality and pleasant shopping experience.  She understands that busy parents want outstanding customer service and high quality clothing, but browsing through stores is not always a simple task with little ones!

Julia and Jason love the location they have chosen to plant their family – a little town with a big name – Boulder, Colorado.  They encourage other outdoor-minded families to come and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Rocky Mountains, the wonderful hiking trails, or to participate in the largest annual 10K run in the country.

Each May, it’s common for those school field trips to come. I recently helped explore the watersheds near our local mountain stream with my daughter’s third-grade class. The teacher, her aide, four other parent volunteers and I split up the class of 26 to drive them up the canyon. Upon arriving in the forest stream area each small group was given things to explore and find out about the environment. Highlights were usually things the third graders found themselves like a dead, half-rotten vole (mouse) on the side of the trail, a garter snake, and deer scat (poop).

Crimson Trail Slope (Utah)

All was going well as we climbed up along a rocky slope trail to sit and look for fossils. Not too long passed and a student cried out. The boy had lost his footing and slid down the rocky slope stopping only when he got tangled up with a juniper tree branch. He called out and a nearby classmate screamed, “He’s bleeding!” The teacher and one of the parent chaperones (who also happened to be a nurse) made their way to the boy while the rest of us calmed the class and kept them from gathering around the injured boy. We could see that he had a scrape on his nose, a cut on his head and was protecting the wrist he fell on. The adults doctored him up then began walking him out to the car where the chaperone would take him back to school to meet the boy’s mother for a doctor’s clinic visit.

The class did fine remaining on their fossil hunt, finishing up only when the chaperones said it was time to go. The class enjoyed their adventures and several students drew get well cards for their classmate as soon as they returned to the classroom. The student did return to school the next day with sparkling eyes and a grin, but he was also sporting four stitches on his head and a cast on his wrist! The teacher of 30 years was commenting it was her first serious student injury on a field trip.

You just never know what will happen next!
