I am falling further and further behind in my blogging. Now I understand why there are so few middle school/high school bloggers.....the parents simply don’t have time anymore to keep up with a blog! I have been posting more of what we do on my Instagram account, so if you are looking for real time updates on what our homeschool days look like, check there first!
Like all weeks, last one was busy. Our Wednesday field trip day involved another trip into New York and like the previous week, this one also involved a bit of drama. Lilah was sick. Normally I am not one to give over the counter medication but she really wanted to go to see Peter and The Star Catcher and I really wanted her to go, so I gave her a dose of Pediacare and off we went.
I have seen many Broadway and off-Broadway plays and musicals. Some I have loved, like Miss Saigon, some I thought were okay, like Phantom of the Opera and some I did not care for, like Sweet Charity. Peter and the Star Catcher is my favorite. Hands down, favorite. It made me laugh until I cried and it made me tear up with heartfelt emotion as well. The connection between the two lead characters was palpable and since this theater is so small, the audience is uniquely drawn into the performance.
We had not read the book by Dave Barry and Ridley Pierson beforehand and the first scene was a bit hard to follow but we were captivated until the very last scene. My only wish is that Greg were with us, but since this was a 2:00 show he could not escape from his office. We were able to meet up with him and make the journey home together. I do hope that one day we will see this again, the four of us......
