Building an Orrey
Having two children playing in differnt age leagues makes transporting the kids a little ... interesting. Luckily Eldest Ones match was cancelled this week , the opposing team forfeited (giving his team a win, a bit of ego bost for the start of this season) , otherwise I would have had to get from Woodville to Westlakes in 15 minutes for Middle One to play.
And play he did, very well in fact. I was very proud of my young man as he mixed it in and executed some very nice team play.
Any trio to soccer also invloves a trip to the library (Eldest One h picked up "Lord of the Rings" to read), and a trip to the library passes by the newsagent, where there was a "Build it yourself" Orrery on the stands. I looked at Middle One, he looked at me. We bought it.
Okay, so it's one of these "by a bit a week" series, but we built the full "Harry Potter" chess set (and play with it), so an Orrery, no problem. Middle One and I can hardly wait for next weeks issue.
Is this the title of the periodical/magazine? Or is it an article in another magazine?
I am very interested and will look for a copy on the US, if possible.
and will look for future posting about progress....
