(If you haven't read it, can I recommend 'Last Child in the Woods' by Richard Louv? I don't say 'life-changing' lightly. More over at his site.)

Minnamurra Rainforest (which is in Jamberoo, about an hour and a half south of Sydney.) Amazing, hey?

And yes, total fluke on the first-up business, just checked in right before heading off to bed! Have a lovely weekend Cate.

Oh my, that photo is amazing. As I scrolled down I was mesmerized by the tree…and then to see your daughter perfectly poised, hugging it below — WOW!!

Thanks for the book recommendation!

This made me laugh about being first — I am just getting UP and was checking for her to post…but I got distracted and landed about 17 or 18…

What fun!

Another tree hugger. Awesome. When people ask me for parenting and homeschooling book recommendations, LCITW is at the top of my list (even though it’s not officially either genre).

I love this photo– and scrolling down to see all of it made for great impact.

That book is really life-changing– I was a bit obsessed with it last summer:
