Tiger Mountain. Last Friday.

The Swamp Monster trail has a series of storyboards. Either intentionally or by accident, they sort of peter out before the end of the trail, leaving us to wonder if the storyteller was, in fact eaten by the evil creature lurking in the muddy forest.

Today. At home. We played our first game of By Jove, which has a Monopoly-meets-Greek-Mythology vibe to it (a Goodwill score). For a boy who’s obsessed with the heroes and villains of the ancient world, there was no better way to play with math than in the context of vanquishing perils like Medusa and the Minotaur.
