After Drama, we went over to Nannie and Abbie's to give him his cards and present. He was very pleased with them, and the girls enjoyed some stickering and reading time with both of them.
We had an interesting discussion on the way home on what substances would be good to swim in; custard, ice cubes, whiskey, jungle rivers and casserole (amongst others) were all suggested, and Grace explained the pros and cons of each. Bizarrely, in a nonsense conversation, we covered density, heat and cold, volume (how many bottles of whiskey would it take to fill a swimming pool?!), parasites and several other really quite "serious" topics.
The conversation took an even more bizarre turn over dinner, when we touched briefly on the idea that people in some countries don't always have enough to eat. Grace's response to the idea of famine was that "they could always eat each other"! she did ask what a cannibal was a couple of days ago (I think she was mulling over Pippi Longstocking at the time), so we are hoping it was connected to that.
We noticed Grace and Jude playing Endless Alphabet on the iPad after dinner, and spotted that Grace was telling Jude which letter to move, and Jude was mostly picking the right one - so Grace is teaching Jude the alphabet!
In the last couple of days, Luke finished reading "James and the Giant Peach" to Grace, and I finished reading her "Ballet Shoes", so our bedtime reading has moved on to "Stig of the Dump" (Luke) and "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" (me).
