Henry’s first visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Today I took Henry to see Hansel and Gretel’s Halloween Adventure at the Marionette Theatre in Central Park. The handcrafted marionette puppets played out a supposed dream by Hansel and Gretel after they return home from their adventure in the forest. Henry seemed to enjoy it, but also claimed “it was scary” and held on to my arm as we watched. After the play, Henry was happy to lead me on a long walk through Central Park. I hadn’t been to Belvedere Castle or The Ramble for a long time, so his enthusiasm was appreciated.
Out for our morning exercise/basketball practice, Henry and I spotted a boot camp for kids taking place. Henry wanted to give it a try and the trainer, Jerry, guided him through some of the exercises. We hope to go for a complete session soon.
Inspired by Henry’s earlier foray into superhero construction, we built as many Marvel characters as we could out of his Lego/Duplo blocks.
