The Great Mobile Project

Rose #1 has been learning about balance points and counterweights in school.   The project that culminates the balance unit is to build a mobile.  Well, H went out today to get the materials - the dowels that form the bar of the mobile - and of course, wouldn't you know it, they were actually lightsabers.  Here are the Jedi and her Padawan having a lightsaber battle:

And here are the Jedi and the Padawan learner (I will leave it to YOU to decide who is who) gazing in a very serious manner into the camera:

And I wish I got a real shot of Rose #3 in her pull-up, her beaded headband, her slipper socks, and her dowel lightsaber (she got the shortest one, of course).  She was moving around too much for you to appreciate the full effect of Rose # 3's Jedi Warrior In a Pull-Up Look:
And in the background, H cutting the dowels for Rose #1 to make her mobile.  All I have to say is, thank GOD for H, because if it was me trying to make the mobile, we would have something with paperclips and rubberbands:
