Camel.

My sincerest apologies for not having a picture. And because I don’t, I know that no one will believe me. But on our way home from Marion, on Sugar Hill Road between Old Fort and Marion, we saw a camel grazing in a field.

Seriously, just a camel eating grass like it was perfectly at home in Western North Carolina.

Sometimes life is just so fun 🙂

A little Monday fun with The Miserables

Our family are HUGE Les Miserables fans. Seriously, we took our boys to see the movie in the theatre in December. Yes, that’s right, a four year old and a six year old for three hours in a movie theatre watching a musical based on a Victor Hugo novel. They were perfectly well behaved and wonderful, completely engrossed in the film. Jude only had to be taken to the bathroom twice and didn’t have an accident!

My husband and I are so enthralled with this musical, it never occurred to us that it might not be just a super happy experience to share with them. Of course we both forgot until we got into the movie that the show is called “the Miserables.” The boys seemed rather shell shocked coming out of the theatre. I mean (SPOILER ALERT), everyone dies.

However we are rather insistent parents, so we bought the soundtrack and insisted that we listen to it on loop for a six hour car trip shortly thereafter. Yeats is now obsessed with the music! He does yell at us if we start to sing “Master of the House,” as it’s about bad people. But the rest of our mad singing of these show tunes he rather seems to enjoy. He often asks to listen to it! Ah, another Victor Hugo fan in the family.

Once upon a time about a decade ago, I never missed the Oscars. Now I can’t remember the last time I watched. BUT I had heard that Les Mis was up for a bunch. So tonight I took a few minutes out of working on some schoolwork (Virgil decided to have a screaming contest with himself and utterly broke my focus) so I took a few minutes to see how the movie fared.

To my surprise they did a full cast performance during the Oscars! Of my husband’s favorite song no less. (My favorite song from the show is “I Dreamed a Dream,” his is “One Day More.”) So here’s the video of last nights performance. LOVE IT!! Yay!!
