Wacky Wednesday

Today is Wacky Wednesday at our local elementary school. It's part of "Spirit Week" leading up to their annual field day of games and fun and community building. Say what you will about home-schooling vs. private schools vs. public schools. This particular public elementary school that my children attend is ACES in my book!

They have been fortunate enough to remain on the smaller side of the local elementary populations, the administration makes genuine efforts to be family-friendly, and the environment there is full of life, fun and love of learning. We feel so blessed by the numbers of Christians that we've encountered in this little community and we are regularly impressed by how hard everyone works to make our school so outstanding. Wacky Wednesday is bound to be a fun day for the kids - the teachers all get really into the spirit of things and are just as silly as the kids! As an aside, I'm particularly fond of this school because of the higher-than-normal ratio of male teachers in the building. As a mother of three boys, I love that they have great men teaching them to love learning!

Here's my two, decked head to toe in their Wacky Wednesday finery. I take no credit - they did it all with each other (a huge milestone of sibling relationship building here!) while I was sleepily checking my emails after breakfast. With the morning sun glaring on their feet, you can't really see that they both have mis-matched socks and shoes. I just hope the school nurse doesn't call me to meet her at the ER with broken ankles from LadyBug's sneaker and ballet flat! And yes, those are pipe cleaners in LadyBug's hair and monkeys hanging all over Dr. D.

Have yourself a Wacky Wednesday - you deserve it :)

The red & blue socks are tops! I think a new fashion trend may be lurking on the horizon...
