Lara Drama Camp

Lara has been at a Drama Summer Camp this week, and she has been learning a scene from A Midsummer Night's Dream, playing the character of Peter Quince, complete with one of my best ties and my "old man's cap", as she called it.
She was very good, she knew all her lines, and where she should be, she was just a little quiet, but at the end all the kids were awarded a certificate based on something they had contributed to the week, and Lara got "Best Group Leader", which sounds about right. The teacher in charge was surprised to find out that Lara was only 8, she thought she was 9 or 10..
Lara enjoyed it so much that we have signed her up for Monday night classes with the same teacher throughout Autumn and Winter, which will replace Taekwondo. Wednesday's taekwondo will also be replaced by ski racing classes at Olympic Park, so her white dobok will be put aside for a while, perhaps until Dan takes over!

Here's Lara getting her certificate:
