Saturday's Activities Include: books and crafts, ice skating, Pub on the Common, CVS, Roche Bros

We all slept in. It was lovely. R. took A. to Michael's to try to get "kinetic sand". If I had just ordered this on Thursday, we would have had it by today. Instead, she wanted to go to a store, and she said Michael's had the stuff. They used to but not any more. They bought some Orb Factory "Morph" all in one compound, but it is really different stuff.

I ordered a bunch of kinetic sand.

I took M. (whose parents were not available today) to Barnes & Noble. I tried mightily to find books to buy, and wasn't sure I would succeed. Eventually, I thought, Self! Buy some travel guides with lots of pictures. I got the Explorer's Guide to Yellowstone, Teton and Jackson Hole which fails on the lots of pictures metric, but it at least used to be a really good guide book series. That's for R. and me. I got a NatGeo Guide to all the US National Parks. It has lots of pictures.

T. and R. went ice skating. First time in a while -- he had been doing basketball on Saturdays but that is over for a while.

After that, I took T. to the Pub on the Common in Littleton. We stopped at CVS for aquaphor and other things (apparently a lot of other things, including a minion tooth brush for A.), and at Roche Bros.
