talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Stories come alive at the theatre


We just returned from a Theatreworks presentation that has us all talking. If You Give a Pig A Pancake was actually seven books that came alive onstage for us. Our friend Janet had invited a small number of homeschoolers to come with her on her field trip, and it was truly entertaining. Now we're reading all the books that were in the story. (I try not to 'read the book' beforehand, myself, because it's always somewhat different. Now the girls can be pleasantly surprised with the books and some activities we can try too!) Besides Pig, we also saw Diary of a Worm, A Prize for Fluffy, Horace and Morris (but mostly Dolores), How I Became a Pirate, Lilly's Big Day, and The Paperbag Princess.

I thought this was the best play yet! We loved it. I especially liked the dragon and wondered what your girls thought.

We talked about the dragon most of the way home. Ingenious! One of the things I like best about these plays is that their props are so spot-on (and possible at home) that it gives us ideas for play here.

Thanks again for inviting us! It really was the best (though we're still singing Onsie, twosie, socksie shoesie from the last one we saw...)
