The Miracle Worker

Last night we went to Syracuse Stage for their production of The Miracle Worker. We were able to go for free because of an elective that Glenn is taking at school. From the time that I had heard that it was going to be done here this spring I have wanted to go but I wasn't sure that I wanted to spend the money for all of us to go. Through his elective Glenn has gone to a couple other (not so family friendly) shows this semester and often the students are told that they are allowed to bring one guest with them. He asked the teacher and a few of his classmates if he could have their extra tickets and we were all able to go. Yesterday we had the kids play 20 Questions to find out what we were doing last night. It wasn't Caleb's turn yet when he figured it out. He was so excited he was jumping up and down. We had taken a tour of Syracuse Stage in the fall and The Miracle Worker was the one show that he really wanted to go to. It was a great show. We all really enjoyed it. The kids were a little freaked out about the parts where Jimmie would talk to her from behind bars but other than that they really liked it.

Thanks God for free tickets to go to The Miracle Worker. Thank You for healthy kids that haven't had to go through the trials that Helen, Annie, and Jimmie did. Thank You also for the great example of perseverance through trials.
