We all came home for tea and a chat. Pearlie and my dad did a bit of investigation of pendulums, and she is planning to produce a graph showing the relationship between length and period. Meanwhile, Leo dashed off this lovely picture.
Today started with a bit of a panic when we realised we had slept in until 11 – only half an hour before Allie had to leave for work! The rest of us decided to get up a bit more slowly and then to do our own penny hike in our neighbourhood. We know about penny hikes from Woodcraft Folk – you start out walking and toss a coin at each corner to decide which way to go. It was lovely – we discovered an alleyway between two streets that we had never seen before, and explored a driveway we’ve been wanting to investigate for ages.
Later, Pearlie went swimming by herself at the local pool, where she bumped into a couple of girls she knows from round and about and had a nice play.
Leo has taken to putting out of order signs on everything. These are getting more and more bizarre. Here’s a selection for your amusement!
