Robin and his brother spent most of the day independently building a ramp to use for doing jumps on a bike or a scooter. They collected scrap lumber from our available assortment, used power tools (drill, jig saw, circular saw, and miter saw - they only really needed supervision with the circular saw and miter saw), and designed and built it. Here is the end result:
They also attended a board game night at our congregation.

I read to Robin.  We were on a social studies kick:

King for a DayKing for a Day by Rukhsana Khan

The Cats In Krasinski SquareThe Cats In Krasinski Square by Karen Hesse

Miss Bridie Chose a ShovelMiss Bridie Chose a Shovel by Leslie Connor

The City of Ember (Book of Ember, #1)The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau

He read a Bob Book to me, worked with Handwriting Without Tears, and with Explode the Code.

We experimented with having him work with Life of Fred instead of Saxon Math.  He really resents his lessons taking much longer than his brother's.

Robin did some scootering.
