EDIT - September 2014 - this journal was historically solely Lyra's domain, at first she was a lone child, later social services restrictions prevented sharing details of Ellie. Ellie joined us four years ago. By birth, the girls are second cousins once removed. They are being raised as sisters and are inseparable. There is just 15 weeks between them, they are in the same class at school. Increasingly I hope this will be a place to share both of their lives. Please come along for the ride!
