I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Theater Thursday - The Twits

What: The Twits

Where: YouTube

Who: Ages 6 and Up

When: Through November 30, 2020

If you are looking for something a little bit different to watch with the kids, the United Kingdom's Unicorn Theater production of The Twits is now available on YouTube and will remain available through November 30.  The Twits, a lesser-known novel of Roald Dahl, tells the story of a horrible couple who eventually get their comeuppance. The production is not strictly a show but rather more of a dramatic reading. The entire book is read aloud, but the more fun parts of the story are acted out along the way. Even the parts that are strictly read manage to hold the attention since the reading is performed with such vigor and a sense of wicked glee.  The show is divided into three different parts of approximately twenty minutes each which makes it easy to consume in small increments for shorter attention spans. Some younger children may find the production a bit scary. Older children might find it a bit too over the top.  It is perfect for middle age children of approximately 6-12.

And that's our view.
