Happy birthday, Shakespeare!

As my beloved husband is writing (well actually, rewriting and rewriting and rewriting!) a middle grade novel about Shakespeare, we celebrated Shakespeare's birthday last night. Did you know it was Shakespeare's birthday?

I had just happened to purchase a Shakespeare-themed gift for Mike at my favorite resale shop the day before, so this was the perfect occasion to give it to him. Kieran wrapped it up for me.

It was a King Lear play set--complete with scripts and props, including a great actor's dagger (that contracts when you stab yourself). As you can imagine, the dagger has been a great hit around here!! We've had all sorts of suicidal soliloquys in the past couple of days.

Later this week Mike and the older boys will see The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged) at Jesuit High School. Happy birthday to the bard!
