ninjitsu skills

Ro is currently fascinated with Ninjas. We've studied feudal Japan a bit and also Lego has come out with a new line of Ninja sets. He's practicing being stealthy. Tonight, he called me into his room for good night prayers and I climbed his ladder but didn't see him in bed. He shouted and jumped out at me from a hiding spot. Aaaaaaah!

Simone is also getting more stealthy. Her great delight is to see if she can sneak up the stairs and jump up by our bed and scare us. She hasn't quite pulled it off yet but she improves every time.

Sweet House

We went to see a play yesterday called Sweet House that was put on by the Rochester Children's Theatre. It was a strange adaptation of Hansel and Gretel trying to convince children to make healthy eating choices.

Afterwards, Roen was interviewed by YNN, a local cable channel. Simone was too nervous to go on the camera. Roen did very well. He says he was a little shy. Coincidentally, Roen has enacted a candy/dessert fast. He started it last Sunday. He told the reporter about it. They thought he was inspired by the play but that isn't the case. It sounded great to go with the report though. Here is the interview.
