Sundays are busy at the moment with extra rehearsals for Bee and Mip for their nativity play. It is being done as a musical, and Bee has been taking it very seriously and listening to the CD all week to learn his songs. (Bee and Mip are extra shepherds!). They are enjoying it very much. I’m a bit niggled by it though – it is done to be entertaining, so Joseph gets the blues, and the “cool shepherds” have to wear shades. But if it’s done to entertain and be funny, what happens to the sense of wonder, and really engaging with the story? Also, in the middle of winter, where can you buy sunglasses for children?!!
