Clara and John have been having a great time playing our two mancala boards. They tend to have unusual strategies like trying to get two in every well, or try to get one well completely full. I am not sure how much rule following is going on, but they get along and have a good time.
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
