Spent much of the (non-work) day with the_child, and with my family (dad, (step)mom and sister). That was fun. the_child gave me some really neat drawings she'd done. We had a little talk about copyright and permission to reproduce, but then my scanner was boogering out bad, so nothing yet.

Also tonight she demonstrated something I'd never seen or heard of — a three-handed cartwheel. Essentially she goes up on one hand, then the other, then rotates 180 degrees on that hand, onto the first hand again, then back on her feet, all in one smooth motion. I asked her who'd taught her that, and she said she'd figured it out herself.

In other news, another chapter down on Escapement.
