A few weeks ago the Idaho Theater for Youth put on a free play on Saturday afternoon at the Morrison Center on the BSU campus. Seth and Lydia and I decided to try it out and we were delighted to have gone. What fun! We can also say we did a little something to commemorate 400 years since Shakespeare's death.
When schoolwork is finished, which is usually sooner than most school kids get out of school, the kids usually have chores and some instrument to practice. Then they like to roller blade, bike, play games, read books, or just hang out together. One afternoon I noticed that they hauled out all the Little People tubs and make a big set-up in the backyard. Didn't think I would see those toys until grandchildren!
Seth loves to take things apart. Not put them back together--just take them apart. We had an old CD player that didn't work and were planning to junk so we let him fiddle with it. I can't tell you how many hours he spent dismantling. He enjoyed it so much we have to guard the things that do work around the house.
This birthday present for Russ has been a huge favorite this spring. We can usually find someone reading or doing schoolwork in it sometime during the day.
