Frick and Frack

Said William Shakespeare,

"All the world's a stage and all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;"

The stage at The Wright Place this week has seen the exit each morning of Meg as she departs to Drama Camp.  The same stage has also seen the entrance of two additional players who are finding their way about in their sister's absence.  These little "players" have more than earned the title.

They began the morning with the daily dose of "Mouse".
Then it was upstairs for

...a wardrobe change and story time.

Reading Eric Carle's "The Very Busy Spider"

The Very Busy Spider

must have made for some 
"very hungry little girls"
 because the next event on their agenda was a run on the

After snacks they played a round of
"Monkey See"...

"Monkey Do"!

Next it was off to band practice...
The drummer...

...and the demanding conductor.

The pianist and the lounge singer.

It occurred to photographer sometime during the jam session that a trip outside was in order.  Alas, as they reached the great outdoors, the great outdoors decided to get a bit drippy.
Not to worry.

It turns out that "Monkey See, Monkey Do" can also be played out-of-doors in the rain!  Who knew?

Frick was concerned when it appeared that Frack had been eaten by Quack. 

 All was well, however, and the Adventures of Frick and Frack ended for the day when their keeper announced lunch!

A younger sister is someone to use as a guinea-pig in trying sledges and experimental go-carts. 
Someone to send on messages to Mum. 
But someone who needs you - who comes to you with bumped heads, grazed knees, tales of persecution. 
Someone who trusts you to defend her. 
Someone who thinks you know the answers to almost everything.
~Pam Brown~
