This week was Red Ribbon Week at school to raise awareness about drugs. I find it ironic that they chose a 70’s theme and a Rock-n-roll theme. Aren’t we trying to raise awareness AGAINST drugs? Yes. So why are we encouraging the children to dress up as people from three of the most drug induced decades in American History?? Hey, I’m just saying how ironic it is! We (I) had so much fun coming up with ideas and ways to dress them!! I’m not the type of person to go out and spend a lot of money on costumes. In fact I usually wait until the absolute last second available to make any kind of plans for a costume so that’s probably why I don’t spend a lot of money on them. I was a little more prepared this year simply because Jacob’s mom called to see if James would want to be his twin on twin day. So we started talking and planning about a week in advance. Oohhh la la.
It’s either this stiff, deer in headlights look or...
Silliness. I like the silliness personally
Tuesday was dress up day at dance so Miss Olivia went as an elephant using Audrey’s first recital costume. She was totes adorbs. And everyone squealed with delight to see an elephant in the midst of all those Princess Elsa’s :)
And wow do I need to clean and re-paint my back door. Heavens to Betsy I had no idea just how dirty and chipped it was until I took these pictures. Any suggestions for a new color? I am thinking red or possibly going all out and being that house in the neighborhood with the turquoise blue doors.
On Thursday we had the spotlight program at school where James and Audrey were both awarded with All A’s Honor Roll and meeting their A.R. goal for the 1st 9 weeks. I’m so proud of them!!
On Friday there was a “Halloween snack” that I helped with and I got there a little early (SHOCKER!!) so the teacher told me to feel free to walk around the class room and take pictures while the kids were reading. So.....guess what I did?
