Thanks Grand Kathy for the pictures and for generally saving the day!
Here I am explaining the rules of the astronaut secret agent game, which involved finding colored sponges that had been lost throughout the galaxy and turning them in for prizes. Thomas is so excited he can't keep still.
Here are the secret agents claiming their rewards.
As they brought in the treasure, I told them they had saved the galaxy. Devon (below) later checked in with me to clarify the connection between the lost sponges and the galaxy being in peril.
The game of course was based on an old pink rock game that Grand Kathy used to mastermind at Mere Point. But the astronaut stuff was our own invention.
You can't tell but Emmett (with Clare below) was still feeling a little poorly from a stomach bug. Later we found out that almost all of the children who came to the party spent the next two days vomiting. But it was still a fun party!
