Anywho.. Today Jiedyn had his very first day off school. The first half of his day was spent resting in bed. Then the remainder was partly spent creating posters for World Environment Day coming up on the 5th of June and getting up to mischief with his sister.
Before we started on our posters and while Nevaeh was having a snooze, I was flicking through the channels and found a documentary on Logging and poaching in Africa! I encouraged Jie to watch it with me and it wasn't long before he realized the effects that Logging in particular had on native wildlife. I turned it off and got him to tell me some animals that live in Australian Forests.. His little heart broke once knowing that they'd lose they're homes. We then spoke about the Indigenous people who live on that land who too would loose they're homes. He understood everything and now had a reason to WANT to go to the event in the city on Tuesday.
When Nevaeh woke up I told her a few basics in a way which she would understand then asked her and Jie what they would say to the Men in the trucks if they saw them.
"That My Trees" - Nevaeh, 3 years
"Leave Our Trees Alone!" - Jiedyn, 6 years
So the slogans for they're posters have been approved!
