This past week has been typical. I know that sounds boring doesn’t it? It’s not really. It’s just that our schooling schedule is so routine, that it just sort of happens without a whole lot of friction. It feels good. It’s just a normal part of life. It’s a nice place to be.
Since the two youngest have been sick with sore throat and congestion all this week, sometimes our length of study time per subject was shortened. As a matter of fact, on Wednesday, they were both feeling so cruddy, I had them lay down with a blanket while I read aloud for 2 hours so they could rest. We are now on the 3rd book in the Peter and the Starcatchers Trilogy.
On Thursday morning, while they were working on math, We had Christmas music playing and I made some cinnamon rolls. It was a nice morning.
On Thursday night, Michael and I went to his second and last required theatre production for his college class. We saw WICKED! I can’t even find words to describe this production. WOW!!! Absolutely brilliant!
This has me thinking. Wicked (which is the story of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz with a different perspective – a prequel if you will), along with the Peter and the Starcatchers Series (also a prequel type story of Peter Pan) have just thrilled us! I’m thinking this might be setting the stage for a great creative writing project ahead. Wouldn't it be fun to pick a familiar story and write the prequel for it?
