Park Board Basketball

Liam played seven weeks of basketball at Lake Harriet with his friend’s father as one of the coaches.

By the end of the seven weeks, he was finally getting the hang of it – he began playing pretty well, but he’ll have to wait until next year to begin again.





Fairy Dust

Ada was telling us in the car as we were driving home from school that Paige had brought in real fairy dust to school. They couldn’t get the bottle open, though, so they couldn’t use it to fly.

After telling us this very short story, I looked in my review mirror to see Helena looking at Liam and smiling, but neither one of them ever told Ada that there was no such thing as fairy dust.

Such nice kids.

Old Gem Theatre

at the Bryant Lake Bowl.

At the beginning, when the actors began going over the rules, such as we were allowed to laugh and clap and give suggestions (this being a kids’ play), we had to act out the laughing, clapping, etc.

So when it was time for the audience to practice a laugh, a gave a very loud and low laugh. The kids found it terribly funny, especially since the actors on the stage noticed as well. They also thought that it was funny when a kid was on the stage dressed in a wig, and when she was supposed to get up from being scared her wig fell off, so I said “They scared the wig right off her!”

So although the play was obviously geared toward kids much younger than the ones that I brought, the kids had a good time.

And Helena even got on stage. She tried to get Ada to go up there with her, but that wasn’t going to happen.
