Daddy's Home!

{this is known as the peanut butter and jelly sandwich}

{silly Daddy is up to his tricks again}
{plateau solitaire}

{nautilus fossil}

{pin the tail on the bunny}

Daddy got home from Madagascar yesterday morning after traveling all night. He slept for about an hour before the kids woke up and found him with great joy. Lucia and I got to sleep in a while longer. Pieter eventually came down and said I just needed to come upstairs to see all the presents he brought home. Beautiful baskets, woven placemats, polished stones, horn utensils... So much fun to see things from so far way. And so much happiness to have Dada home. Ben gave Pieter his sleep mask from the plane and his creative juices started flowing. He disappeared for a while and came back with the game "pin the tail on the bunny!"


Plateau Solitaire: Rules of the game

In the illustration below, at 1, you see the start position. You may remove any ball as the first, but for the outcome of the game it matters of course which one you'll take. So situation 2 may come about, where the circles indicate which balls are allowed to capture the intermediate balls and occupy the empty space. If you do this with the left ball, situation 3 will come about. The captured ball is put on the edge of the board. Etcetera. It is not allowed to move diagonally, only horizontally and vertically.
The aim of the game is to have only one stone left on the board. The game looks deceptively simple, but it will occasion much brain-racking to bring it to a good conclusion.
