We decided to split up with the kids again today. You'll have to read about what Barry and Molly did on their blogs. George and I headed to the Science Museum even though it was a nice day and we were tempted to stay outside. For 4.5 hours we moved about this fascinating place learning about steam trains and the Industrial Revolution, cars, why we crave sugary and fatty foods, explosions, viscosity, force, reflections, and, most importantly, we learned about safe drinking water in London...
I think George would make a great engineer, and he's often expressed interest in this or architecture. He can see things in a way many people cannot; his spacial reasoning is excellent and he loves to build and create. Seeing rooms filled with incredible designs, such as trains, railways, cars, toasters, bridges, etc, seemed to be inspiring.
We made another stop at Uniqlo, our favourite Japanese clothing store, to pick up a few basics for the boys. George needed a new down jacket and Barry a long-sleeved t-shirt. The girls didn't get anything, but had I known I'd come home to find my second pair of pants, originally a tan colour, turned pink in the wash because I'd accidentally turned the hard-to-understand-machine to the Super Heat setting, I might have picked up a pair of jeans! Molly says she likes my pants better in pink - I'm not convinced.
For dinner we had intended to return to our neighbourhood pub, but on the train back we remembered that "The Great British Baking Show" was on BBC at 8:00. We all love the show, (you should check it out) so we hurried home to left-overs, cereal and a lesson on baking yummy pastries.
Another great day on the adventure trail.
