I have not taken the girls to as many shows or plays as I've wanted to. We went and saw a high school production of Charlotte's Web when they were probably four and I've taken them to the circus, but I'm not sure we've done many other shows. So it was time to go see another play. When the Oregon Children's Theater collaborated with Girl Scouts to have a GS discount ticket day for Geronimo Stilton I jumped at the opportunity! The girls have read a lot of the Geronimo Stilton books and love them. Mom went with me and we had a good time. I didn't want to figure out Portland parking (wimp, I know.) So Chris dropped us off and picked us up for the play. Big thanks to him for doing that!!! Izzie was super nervous to find our seats before the play started, even though we had plenty of time. The play was really good. It was funny and educational at the same time. They both had a good time and we definitely need to go see more plays! I may need to think about season tickets for next year's birthday present!

I posted to my neighborhood board but no one really knows for sure where these chickens live. They've been hanging out in various neighbors yards for awhile now. Several weeks after this photo, the only hen I see around is the one on the left. They also don't say name strays. Meet Belinda, also known as Chicky-Chicky. I have not fed her again, but she comes by almost daily to say hi to me. I've been working out in the garage and she keeps me company. I really wouldn't mind but chickens poop a lot. A lot a lot. We've now got chicken poop everywhere. But she's such a sweet gal. We've also got raccoons under the back deck, and I'm surprised they haven't gotten her. Maybe they are full from eating the other three. Or maybe the other tree made it home. I don't know, but for now, we've got a stray chicken named Belinda (after the chicken in the Wizard of Oz, book 2.)
Maddie on Ellie.

Calico Critters. They also bought a small lego kit and decided to save some of their money for a later day.
