Scrap Metal

Robin is really interested in making money.  He was fascinated when his dad and grandfather took many years' accumulation of scrap metal to a buyer this summer and this week he convinced his dad and brother and sister to work on collecting scrap metal from the woods near our home to take to a metal recycler to make some money.  They made two expeditions and should soon have enough for a car-load.  I think he has visions of hundreds of dollars, but in reality he could realistically expect to make tens.  Still worthwhile - and it's good to take the junk out of those woods (which people - illegally - use as a makeshift dump) and put it to use, too.

We did some math and reading and Robin watched some science documentaries.  His brother's been sick, so it was a low-key week.
