Saturday Smile: Hope

I blogged about attending our granddaughters’ middle school play called Circus Olympus last weekend . The play was a unique and contemporary take on Greek mythology.

As I said earlier, I was proud of the girls. But I was also struck at how intently 7-year-old Cole watched the stories, and even more so, how much he talked about them after. The next day he spent time with me, and he asked questions and talked about the stories endlessly. He was especially taken with the story of Pandora’s Box. In this particular presentation, the character of Hope was portrayed by a young girl who performed a ballet dance. It made such an impression on Cole that he drew me this picture of Hope….

I love that there are creative ways to teach children Greek mythology. Perhaps if I had that opportunity, I would remember who’s who!

Have a great weekend.
