Our schoolgirl

Sweet B starts kindergarten Monday. Last weekend, we went to Massachusetts to celebrate our niece’s engagement, and B displayed the engineering gene she’s inherited from her dad. She and a grown-up helper or two constructed this elaborate set of chutes, and performed highly technical experiments to align all the elements properly. Mom was called into play solely to keep the marbles that landed in the tray from popping back out.

A brief consultation...

The marbles (three, I think) dropped into the hopper...

 Around and around they go...


And a graceful acceptance of applause from the dress circle.

So come Monday, she’s ready to roll.
