Little Kids’ Guide to BIG Emotions
This week, Sophia and Olga talk about the eight primary built-in emotions that we all feel, and how Sophia experienced and dealt with them all when she travelled for four days to Siberia a few weeks ago.
While preparing for this episode, Sophia and Olga came across a very informative book entitled Exploring Emotions by Paul Christelis. This book is the perfect way to teach the young big dreamers about dealing with different emotions, what "inner weathers" are, and the importance of acknowledging our emotions. The book is so insightful that Sophia and Olga are doing something that's never been done before in this podcast: read a book. You can listen to the book on YouTube by heading over to this link and purchase Paul's book on Amazon here.
Our challenge for you this week will be based on Paul's book. We would like you to check your personal weather report, be mindful of your emotions and make it a habit to share them with your family every night. Discuss it. We would love to hear your experience so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy the episode!
Sophia’s Trail Race in Siberia. 3 Lessons Learned!
Sophia recently went to Siberia to visit her grandparents, who she has not seen in a long time. Needless to say, it was a fun and exciting experience to catch up with them, and amid this adventure, Sophia had the opportunity to join a trail race. As it was something she had never done before, Sophia was very hesitant and nervous; she was scared that she will fall and get hurt. She just wanted to quit before even starting.
In this episode, Sophia shares the 3 important lessons she learned about herself when she finally got the courage to face her fear and join the trail race. She even won third place in the race, and was very happy that she conquered her fear.
Our challenge to you big dreamers is to play a running game called the Bag Game with your friends and family. It's so much fun, and it will motivate you to get moving. Listen to this week's episode to learn more. Enjoy!

How Our Visit To Pearl Harbor Triggered Profound Gratitude
A few weeks ago, our family visited Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. We learned so many things about this historic location, so much so that it will be the focus in this episode. Sophia and Olga share their thoughts on one of the most tragic days in the history of our country, and the amazing female heroes from that day including Ann Danyo Willgrube and Marguerite H. Gambo.
This week, our challenge for you Big Dreamers is to learn more about our heroes. Who is your favorite? How can you help honor their legacies? You can also show appreciation to our troops by checking out Operation Gratitude.
You can send them letters or care packages. Even at times at peace, there are American soldiers stationed all over the world, away from their families and keeping us safe. We're sure it will mean a lot to them. Enjoy!
