Earth day interview – Hamish 2 and a half

For Earth day I wanted to see how much of an impact my teachings had impacted my children.

I found a list of questions to ask them online and I was quite suprised by some of their answers.

I invite you to interview your children ….this is a fun eye opening experience.
