Princess Rosie's Acting Debut

Sunday, June 26, 2011
Kate did her first summer camp this year.  It was a 2 week acting camp. She was in a group of 4 and 5 years olds and they "used their imaginations" a lot according to Kate.  In fact, every day when I picked her up at noon and asked what they did that day she would say, "We used our imagination!"  They wrote a script and practiced and at the end of the 2 weeks, they put on a play for the parents.

The photos are super grainy as no flash photography was allowed and I bought my D-80...

Kate did a great job remembering her little lines.

Here is a tiny clip of one of Kate's lines.


The entire 4 minutes show can be seen here.

I must tell you that Jerry Seinfeld was SO SO SO SO FUNNY!!!!  I have never laughed so hard.  My face actually hurt from laughing so much.  In fact, I never stopped laughing or smiling the entire hour and a half!!!!   He was pure genius. Honestly, he is in a class by himself.  Every single word and gesture was funny.

I have loved Jerry Seinfeld for many, many years.  I saw the first episode of Seinfeld when it first came on and never missed an episode.  When I was a professor, I often used clips from the show in the classes I taught.  I even co-authored an academic paper on Seinfeld and presented it at a professional conference.  So, my whole adult life, I have wanted to see him.  When Dave told me that we needed a sitter for June 24th, I quickly replied, "Did you get tickets to see Seinfeld?"  He was shocked because it was a surprise. I had no clue he was coming to town or that he was even on tour. I only said that because he is the person I would most want to see in my life.  So needless to say, I had high expectations.  And they were exceeded.  So, if he comes to your town, I would highly recommend seeing him.  Thank you so much Dave for taking me:)

And Jerry, if you and Jessica and the kids ever come back to town, we'd love to have you over!  Seriously, I want to be friends with them.  I know that is kind of crazy but I do.  I love Jessica Seinfeld  as much as I love Jerry. She has a great healthy cooking blog called Do it Delicious that has simple healthy recipes and fabulous videos for the beginner cook:)  I just know we would all get along famously;)

  5. Jerry belongs to the Porsche club out here that we used to hang out in (before we got the adoption bug!). He's a pretty low key, quiet guy when he's off the stage...tell Dave to buy a Porsche & maybe he'll come and hang out with you!

  6. Kate seems so intelligent and mature. :) I have followed your blog for a couple of years and can't help but to notice that she is always so "spot on" with her little performances. :) She is definitely the leader in this group, and always seems to be a step ahead :)

  7. What fun! Maddy did a theatre camp and my quiet, somewhat shy girl loved it!

    Saw Seinfeld here a couple years ago and agree that he was so funny! Everybody needs to laugh like that! Hope you have a good week!

  11. THIS is exactly what children need! I cannot express just how impressed I am with this acting camp! Wow! Allowing children to use their imaginations and ENCOURAGING it. It is soo very crucial to their learning. I find it over and over again, that many children today have simply LOST their imagination. In a world where they are both instantly and over stimulated they have begun to lose their ability or necessity to imagine. I believe that this is one of the reasons reading and writing is not only less interesting, yet more difficult for them to acquire. I think that this type of experience for children is crucial and commend you for always opening up your childrens lives to so many amazing ideas!


    p.s. I totally want to befriend the Seinfeld's! HAHA!
