The days are passing quickly. Time is a wicked creature. Our dear Sophia Penelope turns three years old on July 18th. Below is documentation of how we’ve been spending our summer days.
And she’s got a balance bike!
This sweet, squishy, innocent face. Would you like a duckling?
Wild Things Petting Zoo. An authentic farm experience,
one that we are so grateful for.
The male and female capybaras have escaped at the High Park Zoo! We hope they return home safely. Thanks to @travisdhanraj at CP24 for the fun interview, and for listening to where Sophia thinks the capybaras are…”in the barn.”
Sophia, at Kortright’s Parent and Tot Forest School.
Free-range, barefooted, hippie toddler. Grounded on the Earth.
Lover of wisdom, light, and all things colourful.
When you smile, the world smiles with you.

We love how loose parts encourage imaginative play. This is a town created by Sophia, with a barn for the animals, trucks that are digging around, and a bridge that helps cars get up and down the mountain. Oh, and Jelly Bunny is in a dress.
“Loose parts, natural or synthetic, are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up, and taken apart, and put back together in multiple ways. They are materials with no specific set of directions that can be used alone or combined with other materials…they empower our creativity and imagination.” #openendedplay
“I’m a gypsy woman.”
This mud kitchen. Our hearts are so grateful and we are in love with it! It is just perfect for us, and we can’t thank Joe enough for his time and effort in building it for Sophia.
Fack. My ovaries!
She’s the teeny turtle she spotted in the pond.
“You were wild once. Don’t let them tame you.”
Mud pie, anyone?
Little Penny. On her first day of camp, she wears her knapsack.
The kids at our Bahá’í summer camp in Pottageville. Unity, love, oneness. Kumbaya.
