Some days are bad hair days no matter how hard you try.
Other days are bad hair days BECAUSE you try.
It is Red Ribbon Week at their elementary school this week.
Monday - Wear Red Day
Tuesday - Crazy Socks Day
Wednesday - Crazy Hair Day
Thursday - Pajama Day
Friday - Spirit Day
The kids are having a lot of fun with the crazy days. Tomorrow is pajama day. It also happens to be Grant's class field trip to the corn maze. Pajamas and corn fields...not a good combination. I'm thinking there will be some cold wet kids by the end of the field trip. He insists he will wear pajamas tomorrow no matter what.
We'll see who wins that one.
I'm sort of tired of the crazy days theme at school.
John and Emily had spirit week last week which meant
Costume Day - Halloween costumes in high school
Purple Pride Day
Black Doom to Manual(the rival team) Day
The school had a movie night, powder puff football game night and their regular game against their football rival, Manual, on Friday night.
this week is homecoming week.
Favorite Cartoon Character Day
Class Color Day
Favorite College Team Day
So this weekend is the actual homecoming football game and dance.
I think after this week it is about time to get back to the books (and the uniforms).
How about Sanity for Mom day?
Of course there are no pictures of John and Emily dressed up for their 'days'.
You don't really think they would stand still for that do you?
So instead, how about some more crazy hair?
By the way, Grant is representing the Illini well....
I have always said John and Emily though twins by birth shared not much in common other than the actual date of their birth. Oil and water symbolize the dynamics of their relationship with one another.
Now it has come to this.
They each have their own family crest.
Emily's work of art
This was for honors English class (I think).
Looks more like art class to me, but no one asked my opinion as usual.
Here's the rest of the crew gettin' their art on too.
Grace has discovered the fine art of potholder making...
Grant workin' the paints...
See the tongue stuck out? Yes, he's concentrating.
It appears he's skipped right over Halloween and went straight for the holiday that gets serious about food...Thanksgiving.
Grace's painting of a horse, of course.
Lego creation complete with solar panel for extra power boost
See the bracelets on his arm?
Here is Grace making one of them.
Grant can be found with about twenty of these things on his arm most days as he heads out the door to school. I have to remind him that he can not wear them to class.
The kids around here are wild about these things now.
You cannot find the bands to make these in any craft store in town.
