This month's theme was books. There were five families there, accounting for about a dozen kids ranging from age 2 to 15. Most of them came dressed up and all of them brought books to recommend. The list included Spooks, Garth Nix books, the Otto series, Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children, a series of books about a girl called Lulu, a Charlie and Lola book, Shade's Children, the Mortal Instruments series, The Diary of a Wimpy Kid and two boys brought The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

They also decorated up the lounge and created Club Pandemonium from City of Bones from the Mortal Instrument series. They only had a phone for music so The Girl made a speaker out of glass jugs (to increase the volume), tin foil (to reflect the sound forward) and a wooden paper towel stand (to act as a soundboard). It worked surprisingly well, the music was quite loud :)
After the session, we popped home for a while before The Girl went to her Silver Arts Award group. In the meantime, me and Boykin went and bought hay for the rabbit, had tea out together and bought a dozen packets of seeds. Lots of planting to be done. Yay!
Now it's time for more Animal Farm and bed.
