Revenge of the Poop Orcs

One run-through and two dress rehearsals down, five shows to go (in the next three days). I've been too busy even to take pictures, let alone post any, but hope to get some up soon....

In the meantime, here's what I got!

We rarely take the whole family to see a movie in the theater, but we did for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (well, not the two littlest). The last one before that, and the only one of The Lord of the Rings trilogy which our kids saw in the theater, was The Return of the King. We had worried that it was a little intense for Bantam-then-almost-6, but he was fine. (I made sure he was seated by me, and during the scary parts, I kept checking on him. "I'm trying to watch the movie, Mom," he always answered.)

After TLTW&TW, Papa Rooster asked Bantam-then-6, "So were you scared during the movie?" When he said no, Papa said, "Oh, that's right, you saw The Return of the King, and that was scarier. Was there anything in it that scared you?"

Bantam 6, ever matter-of-fact, replied, "No, not really. Except for maybe the poop orcs."

Papa R: "The poop orcs? What are you talking about?"

Bantam 6: "You know, when they were making the orcs underground out of that poop soup...."

Well, I officially love you.

Any woman who takes their six year old to see LOTR in the theater (as I did - oh wait, I think he was only five), will have my undying friendship.

Mine wasn't scared a bit either.

(Love the poop soup! :) )

Why, thank you! What fraternity we find on the internet...

In fact I added you to my link list a while back because I could tell we had a lot in common!
