Peking Acrobats

Earlier this week, we went to see the Peking Acrobats, in the city. As always, it was entertaining and the announcer told the audience, of mostly children - to be sure to NOT try any of these tricks at home.

Last year, we had great seats! Second row, to be exact.

This year... ugh - the top row. Way up in the back...

The girl never minds waiting. She's happy just being with me!

Back to the announcer's warning about being a Peking Acrobat... and not trying to do the stunts at home.

At home? My kids didn't even get out of the building before trying!

After messing around in the building for a while, with some friends, we headed over to their house for lunch and we got to meet their pets. One of which is named "Beardy", a bearded dragon. Nicolas was thrilled and I have to admit, holding a beardy on my bosom is not the same as holding a fussy, warm-blooded little rodent, like our hamsters.

All in all, it was a fun day. Nicolas plays well with kids both his age and younger. He doesn't really have any friends who are older, so I don't know how that dynamic would work. But - on some days, it's a real gamble as to whether or not he is going to "behave". He did pretty good on this particular day... for Nicolas, that is. I really love having the freedom to homeschool and take field trips... we needed it this week.

And yes, I know that my nails are getting too long again. Makes typing a lot of fun.

  1. We've seen the Peking Acrobats a few times at the Overture, though not the past couple of years. Sounds like a fun field trip!
