Last Friday night Hunter was King Arthur in the Missoula Children’s Theater production of King Arthur’s Quest. Above is our own King Arthur along with his “mini”, a first grade boy who was the mini-King Arthur. Quite cute.
Our elementary school brought Missoula Children’s Theater last year to our school. I put out a plea for you to save your boxtops so our school could fund this event on an annual basis. Thanks to those that sent them to us! This year our school put their box top money plus a few community organizations help fund the production. Try outs were on Monday and by Friday night the play happened with out a glitch. It is an awesome experience for each child. It gets kids from kindergarten through grade six working together and active in the arts, forcing them to step outside of their comfort zone. You can see what a confidence builder it is for many of the kids.
For Hunter it was no different. He thoroughly enjoyed his role. We know from home that he has an ability to give dramatic impressions…an inherited ability from yours truly. To see Hunter take his acting on stage was fun for all to see.
Hunter had a fan club that road tripped to see him as King Arthur (plus Gpa Eldon and Nana were there but missed out on our picture.)
The girls were jazzed with the play and stayed attentive through it. Elissa is still talking about the dragon in the play. He was a kind dragon but definitely caught our two year old’s attention. E would like her own dragon costume. For now she just has her brother acting as the dragon each night while she runs away from him. They are quite a pair.
Tonight we are attending Hunter’s last spring elementary music concert. The end of elementary school is upon Hunter in just a few short weeks. We have to stop and cherish the moments we have with our kids because it seems to all be going faster and faster.
