The Operatic Experience

We're on a musical binge!

Or not.

BUT ANYWAY, we were at the Abilene Civic Center today to watch ( the abbreviated verstion of ) a production of Hansel and Gretel by ACU Opera group.

We've never watched live opera, but there was a powerpoint presentation off to the side with the lyrics, so we weren't quite so lost with all the sopranic gusto that was going on.

It was a shortened version of the opera, and so we managed to have our attentions held for 40 minutes, no problem.

Great Job, ACU Opera!

Oh, and the next event that we will be looking forward to after Thanksgiving would be the downtown Christmas Parade followed by the lighting of the tree, which is already up!

Overheard at School

We've been learning about arrays, and rows and columns...

Mommy : Okay, what do you call the line of blocks that goes across?
Jaxon : A Row
Mommy : What do you call the line of blocks that goes from top to bottom?
Jaxon : A Colliseum.
Mommy : ^___^
