I didn't know Star Wars had a concert! That's a great picture, he's really looking UP! :0) Did he like the concert?

I've always loved Star Wars, since I was a little girl. I've had an almost lifelong crush on Harrison Ford.

The concert has been touring since May--it's quite the big event! Anthony Daniels (the voice of C-3PO I think) does the narration for the concert and the symphony performing the music is amazing.

I don't think I had quite the same degree of "different-ness"(yes, I made that up) that L experiences - but I was close, and recall the price for that, socially.

I wish we had Star Wars then. It might have saved me a lot of...stuff.

It looks like L. had a marvelous time, and yes I agree it could be the start of something big for him. And hey, he could have latched on to KISS! No, really, they're supposedly a big thing for a lot of kids his age. just sayin' :0)

I'm thankful he hasn't latched on to KISS, although I expect there's still plenty of time for that!

It took Scooter a while to warm up to Star Wars too, and he would probably deny knowing any time when he didn't love it. I'm quite glad that this and Legos are generally popular with boys his age since it's made it much easier for him to connect with other kids.

Currently, Scooter falls asleep each night to a Star Wars CD. He would love the concert!

I think he would love it too, Mouse-Scott said there were many, many kids in attendance, but he was also amazed at how many grown-ups WITHOUT kids were there, too!
