Six Dancing Princesses
Last week I was watching my friends' kids for the day and I needed some planned activity to keep us all busy and happy. I thought about doing a craft with them, but I'm not the best at kid crafts. And then I remembered that ever since we got our mac several years ago, I've been wanting to make a movie with my kids. Seemed like a great idea since the oldest of the six girls in my care last week is eight years old, and would totally get the idea of making a movie and help get the other girls excited. So Bobby helped me come up with a basic plot: The six little girls were princesses who were also sisters, and their youngest sister (Claire) gets abducted by the wicked lady Katherine (me) and they have to save her. It was totally fun and the girls got really into it and we threw some of their ideas in, too. They were great little actresses. I did learn from this experience that I'm a pretty crappy story teller. You'll see what I mean when you listen to my narration. Anyway, I'm sure we'll do this again. It was a lot of fun. Enjoy! You'll get to see first hand what a big major dork I am.
