Starry, Starry Times

We had great time making paper maché dolls for our colourful wigs. G was playing with clay this weekend and made a night sky, a little snake and several other animals. She went on to change it into a top for the doll. I was absolutely amazed. There are few things that I enjoy more than watching her come up with her own original ideas. 

She got glow-in-the-dark stars and a moon that we stuck on her shelve above her bed this week (even though it pains me to put stickers on furniture). We switch off the lights and watch the stars and the moon now every night and imagine we are outside (the real deal will be nicer, but it's pretty awesome to make up our own stories).

"Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.” Marcus Aurelius

I hope to be see the night sky in all its glory somewhere far away from the bright city lights in the distant future, hopefully when winter rolls around.
