The show went on, and it was great.
The show went on...and it was fun and funny. The girls wanted me to tape it, so I went and rented the coolest little video camera, I'd never used one before, it was so tiny, and a bunch of other folks were videoing, but they really wanted me to tape it too as their Dad wasn't there, he's still in Spain..Soooo....
I took still photos before and after, and video during...an adventure all around.
The kids had done an amazing job, the play was half an hour long, with a battle scene and a dance number, as well as lots of text, which they had also written...it turned out really well....
One of the kids said they wanted it to be funny, have deaths and also adventure, and they did it all.
There was a sorceress, a troll king, his brother the fox who was nice, there were two knights in shining armour, a phoenix, a fairy, an ice dragon and a cowgirl. Also there was a narrator/musician/extra dancer. The story was set in an enchanted forest in which the cowgirl had found herself, her companions being murdered by the magical, and rather violently vengful trees, she herself escaped and together with the magical cast set the world to rights...
They were fairly content about it all as well, although I think they are a bit sad that this camp is ending, it was so fantastic that it is hard to top, and hard to leave. There were of course times when it was difficult, but by and large, they thought it was amazing. So did I. What an opportunity.
Lets hope at least one of the videos turned out well.
Road trip tomorrow...should be fun.
Off to read Potter, the copy of number 7 I have available heads up to a cottage on the 5th, so if I don't hurry up I may have to start reading it before I finish 6!
