The spring season of children's theater has begun, and yesterday we greatly enjoyed seeing "Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel." Our homeschooling group buys tickets as a school group, so we get to see professional, live theater for only six dollars per ticket.
|I supervised five children in the theater.|
This may have been Margaret's first time being old enough to go into the theater. I was on full-time duty reminding her (at almost four) not to shout out and narrate enthusiastically. Many times I wished photographs were allowed during the performance so I could have captured the absolute magic and wonder of her facial expressions at her first big kid play.

While I supervised five big kids inside the theater, a friend of mine supervised five babies in the children's play area of the attached library. She was far braver than I would be entertaining one four-year-old, two two-year-olds, and two under-one-but-mobile babies.

After the play, my friend and I walked around the block to eat lunch downtown. I am always grateful that the restaurant gives us and our nine kids a private room in back!
