From thinking The Daddy One would be in Texas he actually has a home day today. We have, in various combinations along with Smart Sandals, played magic cauldron, made Chinese lanterns, been to the library for Roman Mysteries, visited the allotment, made the duplo castle, work has commenced on S's history of doll's project and, via wikipedia, we have discovered that Skipper has a twin brother call Todd. It's gonna be a great project.
