Monster Physics

My son and I checked out a new app while the others were at the movie. It is called “Monster Physics”. You get to build contraptions to solve puzzles. We had lots of fun with it after we mastered the screen navigation… It has a very intuitive user interface and the puzzles are interesting. We made 2 separate players so we could each do the levels and compare our solutions. It is made by the same designer as “Stack the States”.

You can also create your own stuff free form. My son made a claw game.

Paper Wasps

When I went to get the local paper from our box, I found this attached to it.

It led to lots of questions from my son, so we hit the internet and took pictures.

Here are close up pictures of ours. You can see the eggs and larvae.

Here is the way it was held to the paper on its little stalk.

While we were outside observing we saw lots of animals including a bunny that came up behind us and a duck that landed on our roof.


I love this game! It is a rummy-type game where you draw and discard cards while trying to go out by making high scoring words using all your cards. There are 8 rounds, starting with 3 cards each and then each round you add another card until you play with 10 each. The kids and I don’t keep score but we do add up the points.
