Drama, drama everywhere. But luckily the drama around here is all taking place on the stage and not so much kid drama. We have taken the kids to see 3 plays in the last month.

First it was Cats at the high school. Good show. The kids liked the music and M bought various songs to put on his iPod.

Next came Fiddler on the Roof, put on by M's middle school. I was a little worried about 6th - 8th graders putting this on, but they did a great job. A few rough edges where they didn't have enough strong male voices, but overall quite enjoyable.

Lastly came A Servant of Two Masters, put on in town by Shake at the Lake. Very funny. Lots of current events/local humor, including some that luckily went right over the kids heads. Thank goodness - because some of the comments had me wondering about their "appropriate for all ages" designation. Adding to the hilarity of the play was the fact that it was intermittently raining - not hard, but it kept starting and stopping - and we were outside. So, about every 5 minutes the rain would start up, umbrellas would go up. Then after 2-5 minutes, the rain would stop and the umbrellas would go back down. Up. Down. Up. Down. For 2 hours!

Both kids did fine at all 3 plays, though A did get a little more restless. It's nice to have them both at an age where we can all enjoy plays now.

I love it when we can take the kids places and enjoy it. Or even the bird, like we did today!
