May the force be with you...

We took the boys to the MSO Pops "John Williams" concert on Saturday night.  It was FANTASTIC and the boys loved it  - so did we! I got the double album- yeah, vinyl-soundtrack for my 11th birthday, and listened to it over and over.  I ate through countless boxes of weeties to try and collect all 10 posters in the series.  So it was a no brainer that as soon as the JediKid showed the slightest interest in Star Wars,     I was in like Flynn!  
The boys sat through a 2 1/2 hour classical music concert with no problems at all, talking loudly only once, in about the 3rd piece in, when music obsessed ( and listening intently)  Tigerboy suddenly proclaimed "there's a piano". We went for a walk up to the front to show them the instruments at interval, and to point out that yes, there was indeed a piano on the stage!
As we stood up to leave, the couple behind us told us "your boys were so well behaved, that was a long concert to sit through and they were so good!". Which was lovely to hear, although I did explain that they have been humming the Star Wars theme non stop for pretty much the last 3 years!
