That's One Less Thing To Worry About

High on Cora’s List of Things To Do this summer has been circus camp: for whatever reason, she’s had it stuck in her mind that this is something she’d like to do.

Actually I know the reason: on the PBS show “Arthur” the kids spent a week at circus camp and ended up being able to juggle, do flips, and more. So of course, that’s what Cora would look like in real life at the end of a week of circus camp.

I did some research and actually found a circus school in my area – a good one, no less – and they do weekly summer circus camps. I haven’t told Cora about it because it’s not super close to us and I’ve been waiting to see if she’d grow out of the circus thing.

Then last week, a small circus came to our town and Brian surprised the girls with tickets. We went and sat under the actual tent and watched everyone have a great time, culminating of course in a trapeze act. We had front-row seats and Cora watched, wide-eyed and silent, the whole time.

As we got home from the big top, I said, “So, Cora, does this make you want to go to circus camp even more now?”

Cora turned to me and deadpanned, “Oh, yeah, definitely. That is, if I want to break a lot of bones and FALL a lot! No thank you.”

Guess that’s been crossed off the list.
