During dinner, I’ve previously used fruit and the lamp above the table to try and explain the basics of the solar system to Ellie (particularly as the solar eclipse was approaching a few months ago).
A couple of nights ago, out of the blue, Ellie grabbed a few pieces of fruit and started to explain the solar system to me, completely unprompted. That was amazing in and of itself, but she also came up with a few new theories as to why certain things happen. They weren’t all true, but seeing the cogs turn in her head is amazing to me. She is one exceptional child.
