Concert Shenanigans

Today hubby and I helped chaperone a gaggle of kids from Child's school to the annual Symphony Kid's Concert. Elementary kids from every school in town + several from nearby towns for an hour of classical music!

It wasn't too bad. Most of them aren't used to concerts like Child is, so there was an awful lot of fidgeting and whispering and poking and putting feet through the seats and making faces at each other. In our group there was also 1 nosebleed, 3 potty runs, and 2 cup-of-water runs. I'll be glad when Us Three go to the full concert tomorrow night so we can actually pay attention to the music, but it was fun.

I enjoyed watching Child and Girl Next To Her do Egyptian Princess snake-slithery movements to Aaron Copeland. :)

NEXT WEEK I'll be revisiting 10 top posts of the past 4 years, to celebrate my 4th blogiversary. Two a day, Monday through Friday. I hope you'll come back and check them out!!

That's awesome of you to expose young'uns to classical music. I love going to the philharmonic and often wonder how my kid (when I have one) will react to classical concerts :)

Ah, chaperonage--the thing that makes us appreciate our own little angels so much. ;)

Can't wait to see your posting highlights next week!
