We’ve managed to get through 5 of the 6 Star Wars movies in the past two weeks. A shocking display of commitment on our part (we’re still at the 20 minute mark of the first movie in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, started a year ago). Effie’s really into SW. Ferg comes and goes but hasn’t yet been scared off by any of the noise, severed limbs, etc. This weekend has officially been dubbed “Daddy’s Solitary Preview of Star Wars III To Check For Yucky Bits”.
The kiddos recreated scenes from Star Wars the other night complete with bowling pins as blasters, lightsabres as lightsabres, and bunk beds doubling as the millenium falcon. Effie played close to 10 characters. Fergus stuck to R2D2. It was a packed, if unsafe, house - all two people in the audience got “pewed” many, many times.
