Budding democracy

Today my five year old chaired a democratic meeting. It wasn't the most orderly meeting we've ever had (and we've had some pretty disorderly meetings in the last month) but she did it, it worked and we made some decisions.

She also climbed trees, got into a fight over fairy dust (ash) and played lots and lots of tag; but as a group they're starting to understand the power they have in this embryonic democracy. It's pretty wonderful to watch.
