We recently downloaded the SketchTime app for the iPad, and a certain Super Mario Bros. fan knew exactly what he wanted to draw first!  What a fun app – you can draw on your own, or import photos and trace them – and then everything can be saved or emailed.  Very cool!


It’s Mario!!

  • Researching Paper Mario “flopside pit of 100 trials” online to see what happens when you get through to the end
  • Tetris, Pokemon Rumble, Mario Kart Wii
  • Star Wars battles with figures and toy ships
  • Reading more Mysterious Benedict Society
  • Drawing line-designs on posterboard and a panda with SF (small feet) on the dry erase board
  • Looking through catalogs of decorations to plan for “super spooky Halloween decorating”
  • Trip to town library to get Haunted Hikes of New Hampshire book
  • Reading some of the Haunted Hikes book led to talking about aliens and UFOs (per Chapter 4) and whether aliens really exist (Robbie says “no they don’t!!!”) and the International Space Station and whether Mars might be able to support life.  Then we looked up the UFO abduction story of the NH couple who said they were abducted in the 1960s, and we discovered that there’s a Historical Marker at the abduction site – so we added that to our list of things to go see.  Robbie said “Will the aliens be waiting for us when we get there?  I don’t THINK so!!
  • Out to New Castle Commons to walk on the rocks at low tide
  • Stop by Portsmouth North Cemetery, where we saw the grave of someone who signed the Declaration of Independence (William Whipple)
  • We use the IMDb website to help decide which movies sound fun to watch and which are move violent or gorey than Robbie might enjoy (we look at the site together, and he uses the information there to decide for himself what he’s comfortable with).  While reading about the Star Trek movie we got from Netflix, to see if we wanted to watch it this evening, I came across some information I thought Robbie might want to know.

Me:  “There’s a scene where a creature eats another creature.”

Rb: “Why is that at all disturbing?  Life cycle – hello??”

  • Watching Star Trek (2009): “I’m not sure if that’s the best Star Trek movie ever or the worst… but I think I liked it!”
