The kids are enthralled by the series and try to negotiate extending their bedtime every night just to be able to hear a bit more.  Ever heard of an agamograph? Well the kids were bored over the weekend and I found this little activity for them to do. H made this one. You can find the template here D made the one below.

I sat a long while trying to think of what to write about but with nowhere to go and nothing to do there is not much to share.  So while I don't use the blog to do a lot of blatant self promotion except for the occasional  Friday Photography posts, I am doing it now.
