The rich, beautiful language brought to the girls through the Waldorf curriculum is ringing through our house right now. Springtime is performance time.
Helen is performing in two plays this week. She is an extra in the 3rd grade's play about Moses and is Feste (the fool) in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. She has rehearsals and performances every night this week.
Lou is Demeter in Demeter and Persephone which will be performed in May. She has a massive amount of lines and a solo.
The girls have been helping each other learn their lines. It is fun to watch them coach each other.
Golden wheat and red fruit grow ripe through my care."
Oh stay and hear your true loves coming,
Who can sing both high and low.
Trip no further, pretty sweeting:
Journeys end in lovers meeting,
Ev'ry wise man's son doth know.
