Okay...just a litle bragging for today. My kids are just way too cool! This was homecoming week at school and the prizes are awarded for the best dressed each day. Cameron has always wanted to win, but has yet to achieve that goal. This was definitely his year...sorry to say I did not take pictures. Don't know what I was thinking...oh yeah, I am just trying to get out of the house on time! ;)
Anyway, Cameron won for Geek Day and Favorite Color Day. On Geek Day he had a shirt buttoned up to his neck with a pocket full of pens, jeans pulled up to his armpits, mismatched knee socks, dress shoes and the greasiest slicked over hair that wouldn't budge even when we tried to wash it out. SOOO wish I had a picture!
For Favorite Color Day, he was in Jayhawk colors (of course!). He wore blue Jayhawk shorts and shirt, painted his arms and legs blue and his head and hair red. AWESOME!! So much fun!
Chloe won for Maroon Mania Day! She wore her cheerleader uniform, homecoming mum, high ponytail with a maroon mesh bow that stood high on her head and had her face painted maroon and white! It was awesome!
My fifth grade class won the door decorating contest and the Founder's Award for class cheer at the pep rally. We won simply because we were the only class to create a cheer based on the theme of the week...Superheros! Ice Cream Parties await us!
Jackson and Cameron both had to miss the pep rallies because they had won the school spelling bee for their grades and the regional bee was yesterday afternoon. Cameron finished 7th place and Jackson finished 3rd!! I am so proud of them!
Monday was the school speech meet. Cameron won for his recitation of "The Honest Woodman" and Jackson won for his original speech "Our Nation: Freedom or Chains." The regional speech meet is in February. I'll be sure to let you know how it goes!
I truly love my children and am so blessed to be their mom!
