We've got the spirit

Yes we do!

We've got the spirit, how about you??

In honor of the homecoming game on Friday, our school had Spirit Week last week. Each day is highlighted with a theme and the kids dress up to get in the spirit.

If I must say, last year's themes were much better. Not to rain on anybody's senior year parade but "Decade Day" trumps "Comfy Day" at any given moment in the time-space continuum.

Ahem. Moving on.

For "College Dress Day" we decided to go outside of the typical University of Alabama "box". Not that we don't love our Crimson Tide, but we chose to go with another team we cheer for in honor of my brother.

Lego-Man actually had to defend his team of choice, by explaining to one of his buddies that the Navy IS actually a college team!

And then there was "Disney Day". I don't know too many 10 year old boys who are in the least bit interested in dressing up like a Disney character, well except for the boys who came to school as female characters.


Not my boy.

Who is the Princess dressed up like, you may wonder? Isabella from Phineas and Ferb, of course.

I'm gonna have to skip "Comfy Day" due to lack of interest. Because kids in pajama pants at school is just not very exciting to blog about.

"When I Grow Up Day" was a bit tough for Lego-Man; however, the Princess has was easy with her always ready veterinarian costume. We decided to go with Lego-Man's new sport for his costume. By the time he got home from school he was done with the hat and goggles part of his costume.

We've got the spirit down deep inside, so bring it up, don't let it hide!

They look awesome! How funny that he had to defend his choice of team. He represented in his NAVY shirt and enlightened a class mate :)

Have a great week!

So cute! Great job with them all.
I am afraid of the spirit, lol! I mean is this stressful as a parent to come up with all of these ideas for the clothing? My SIL was telling me about how they do this at her kids school and with ball games and all she finds it stressful.

TOO cute! I have to say, though...comfy day has it's merits. An excuse to wear my "house clothes" all day? I'd take it.
