Rivendell went to Medieval Times for the matinee showing today. We did this as well the last time we were doing year 2 of Tapestry of Grace, and it was exactly 4 years ago to the day, as my Timehop reminded me. That time we went to an evening show. Bob took the 4 boys plus Anna and Grace, and I stayed home with Faith and Micah, so I had never been before. We had such a fun time! Kudos again to Emily R., our outstanding field trip coordinater!
I was worried that maybe there wouldn't be enough food, since Verity didn't have a plate of her own. I needn't have worried! Between my plate, as well as Micah's and Drew's plates, we had plenty of food for the 4 of us! Micah and Drew were absolutely transfixed by the whole show. They are the perfect age for choreographed stage combat! I can foresee there being a ton of sword-fighting (non-choreographed) here at the house, with many hurt feelings and bumps and bruises for the next little while. Micah wanted to wear his crown to bed. As soon as the food was done, Verity was pretty much done as well, so the last part of the show I spent wrestling her (non-choreographed). I felt very validated that I stayed home with Faith and Micah 4 years ago, lol.
