The snow was coming down hard, adding to the multitude of inches already on the ground. All public (and Catholic) schools in our area were closed. So we called it a snow day ourselves and closed the store. We had our computers and enough work to keep us busy at home, so we weren’t too bothered by “hunkering down” as we like to do on these frigid white days.
But then the snow stopped falling and I thought it would be fun to do something special with Elizabeth. Something indoors, that is. We had been trying to go see Charlotte’s Web at the children’s theater so I called and was surprised to learn they had available seats. They tend to book up, even during the week. We had to race to get there, and unfortunately did miss the first few minutes. It was her first play, so I thought she should see the “curtain” opening.
A couple of minutes into the play, she looked at me a little perplexed… “Is that a real pig?” she asked. Ha! I had to quietly explain to her that, no, they were all human actors portraying the pig, spider, geese, and the rat. She let her imagination take over, and I’m happy to say that she enjoyed her first play very much. Looking forward to more!
