The Princess and The Pea!

Last week was a flurry of excited preparation and nightly exhaustion.  I don’t think Oona has ever slept so well!

On Monday the girls were assigned their parts in the play – a re-working of The Princess and the Pea.  They then had until Saturday to learn their parts and perform it.

Maddie was cast as the Princess.  Emily was cast as a phony princess vying for the prince’s attention.  Neve was a wind-maker from the prince’s wintry kingdom, and Oona was a dust bunny from under the princess’ bed.

We knew at least two other families’ worth of kids taking part, so it was a fun mix of old and new friends.

This is what happens when they ask my kid to make a funny face.

Paul’s parents came down from New York and we spent the day in town going to both performances.

It was a wonderful, magical experience for the kids and we are thrilled they were able to take part.  We are sure to do it again next year!
