The Lion King
I know that this isn't a homeschooling topic, per se, but I had to share!
Last night we took Reilly to see The Lion King on stage and it was, without a doubt, hands down, the most fantastic show I've ever seen! (and I've seen quite a few shows!)We had purchased the tickets about 9 months ago, and originally just Ched and I were going to go, but he decided that he'd like for her to see it as well, so we snagged another ticket for her. It just happened, timing wise, that the date we chose coincided with our last day of school, which was Friday, so we turned it into an End of School celebration and took her out to dinner.
Our seats were row G (the first row was C, so we were even closer than I thought we'd be) and we ended up being right on the aisle. (That was sheer luck because the theatre had to add two extra aisles for the opening scene, and when we bought the tickets we didn't know where those aisles were going to go in!) So, the music starts, here come the animals down the aisle and we were on the side with the elephant! Reilly's eyes were as big as SAUCERS!! Frankly, my eyes were filled with tears because it was so fantastic and I was so thrilled, and I guess that's how I handle emotion!
*sigh* I want to go back and see it again!
