Since Jesse has taken such an interest in theatre this last year, R bought us all tickets to the upcoming Broadway touring season the Performing Arts Center. I'm excited! By getting our tickets for Tuesday nights we were able to get great seats (thank you nice guy at the PAC box office for working with me!) There are 5 shows, plus we'll probably get the additional tickets for Blue Man Group. I'm looking forward to it a lot, though the second show of the season, On Golden Pond, isn't really our cup of tea, so we're giving our tickets for that night to my Mom, who loves that kind of thing. The last show of the season is Spamalot, which I just can't wait to see. The other shows are I can't Stop Loving You, Man of La Mancha, and Mamma Mia!

Today at work has been uneventful, though I have had a headache since the middle of the night. I have a new client today, which always makes my boss happy, so that's good. Honestly, I really just feel like coasting through this week as smoothly as possible, as my nerves are still just a little raw from the last couple of weeks of stress and non-stop activity. The next week isn't looking any better as I have things to do with family tonight and tomorrow night and then Friday and Saturday R and I are taking the kids to Six Flags. Next week though, I am going to insist on some down time!

Mom called me to say that Jesse and Dingo had good morning. They went on a tour of the EMSA facilities, got to go in an ambulance with the siren on, play with the EMSA dog (who's named Lansing) and got to take the Friends and Family CPR class. They even got CPR cards for completing the class and are very excited about that. They have Campfire this afternoon and get to do pirate stuff there for Talk Like a Pirate Day. Plus they're making paper monarch butterflies to send to Minnesota which will then be sent to kids in Mexico and then next spring they'll get butterflies back from kids in Mexico, to simulate the annual Monarch migration. Way cool.

Ok, off to lunch and my Tuesday staffings...
lisamoe: (Jesse and Dingo)
Today at Campfire, the kindergarteners (Dingo is a kindergartner as of today!) and first graders were playing Simon Says.

Leader: "Simon says look happy!" (Kids look happy)
First kid: "Simon says run in place!" (Kids run in place)
Second kid: "Simon says look mad!" (Kids make angry faces)
Dingo: "Simon says act like a black hole!" (Kids look around, puzzled)
Leader: "Dingo, I don't think they understand what you mean, can Simon tell them to do something else?"
Dingo: "Simon says eat a big worm."

Clearly, Dingo is off to a rousing start at Campfire this year. Jesse, while more cooperative and also clear on the concept of black holes, was entirely unable to make a simple mobile from a coathanger, string and beads. You know how smart he is, but he just can't cope with crafts. If it has popsicle sticks, yarn, glue or involves scissors, it's very likely going to be a big frustrating mess. He's more of an idea man.
