It's been nearly two months since our family made our first official appearance, or troop, as Star Wars characters. So far, we've trooped at a birthday party, a zoo, a symphony, a pet store, a library, and other places. By the end of this week, we'll have done ten troops--assuming all of us are well enough to do it, that is (Alex is sick at the moment). Here are a few photos of us in costume:
Alex "stole" Boba Fett's blaster, but he'd better run away if he wants to keep it! (Eugene is in the background as the Imperial Gunner.)
Alex and I play checkers. (In case the height difference isn't obvious, I'm the one on the left.)
We found a droid! Can we keep him?
Our new Sandcrawler comes "some assembly required."
We don't see this cold white stuff on Tattooine, but it sure is fun to throw around! (I'm the one about to throw a snowball at Alex on the ground. Eugene is at extreme left.)
Despite the trooping, I have nearly 55,000 words in Fifth Season and am up to revising Chapter Four in Chaos Season. Hopefully I'll be able to get some more writing done over Thanksgiving.
