Bebop with Aesop

A couple of weeks ago Leif and Freja had some fun be-bopping with their friends and classmates in a school musical called “Bebop with Aesop.” The fifth and sixth grade students performed  vignettes and then songs relating to the lessons found within the fables. Aesop, of course,  had words of wisdom for the audience between each scene. It was a darling production and our family thoroughly enjoyed it!

While we waited for the show to begin . . .

The milkmaid skillfully taught us about not counting our chickens before they hatch . . .

Leif reminded me of my dad—with all that facial hair and his baby blues—I could not stop giggling to myself as I watched him dance around in a toga. What a hoot!

When everyone left Mom made a couple of her favorite Thespians  pose for her camera . . .
