Lessons for my Rebel Girl


My darling girl turned 8 this week. 8!?! I have no idea where that time has gone, everyone was so right, time really does fly.

She seems to have changed overnight. No longer is she a fragile little girl, but a fierce tween, with strong opinions on her life. She is developing a crazy awesome sense of style, dyeing her hair all the shades of the rainbow, experimenting with make-up, and listening to indie rock music. But at the same time, playing with her dolls, obsessing over Harry Potter, being fascinated with Egyptians, only wearing the colour purple, and playing make believe small worlds with her sister. She dreams of travelling the world, hunting fossils and discovering archaeological gems. I imagine her like some kind of rebel Lara Croft.

Monster Movie

Today has been a lazy day at home where we've been making use of our Christmas presents.

Little Bean loves putting on shows with her Playmobil people and dolls, which she often records on my phone. We bought her this kit for Christmas so she could be inspired to create some of her own animations.

Read with Us: January 2018

What we've mostly been reading this month . . .

This Phenomenal Life; written by Misha Maynerick Blaise
This book was recommended by Sara, Happiness is Here, one of my favourite, inspiring unschooling bloggers (side note, check out her blog if you haven't already, it's fab!). Through beautiful illustrations and straightforward language this book explains all of the fascinating ways that we are connected with the natural world. This is one of those books that will be left out on the coffee table for us to keep going back to.
