national lutheran schools week

as most of you know, my girls attend a lutheran dayschool.  kelby is in pre-k there while kevyn's class is less structured and more of a daycare than dayschool.  the dayschool is part of a larger school (across the street) that enrolls kids up to eighth grade.  each year they celebrate national lutheran schools week by dressing up various ways.  you can view last years post here.  this is how last week went down:


of course for team spirit day both the girls wore their A&M shirts along with some face tattoos.  kevyn was mad at me but i can't remember why. 



 this might have been our favorite day.  i made kelby a t-shirt, bow, and duck tape toms.  yes, i know.  i rock.  kelby liked it simply for the fact that the duck tape (yes, duck tape - not duct tape) was zebra print and hot pink.  she did not think my toms were as cute as i thought they were.  in fact, i had to make her wear them (lots of bribing) and promised her that i would help her change shoes once she showed mrs nancy.  when i picked her up that day, she told me how she was asked to go over to the "big" school to show the other kids her outfit along with two other classmates.  i'm sure this was solely due to the super cute toms that i had made (just kidding here).  i was speechless when she told me she did not put them back on...  err!

kevyn needed to have her baby's picture taken.  so there you go.


kelby was going to dress up like a librarian for career day.  she loves going to the library and is envious of the lady getting to stamp all the books.  for her, its all about the stamp.  we got a date stamp from mom and i rigged up a few of her books to have the little sheets in them for her to stamp on.  i also made a name tag and was hoping she would wear some old glasses (less the lenses) and a bun.  unfortunately tuesday night she got sick.  and even though she had no symptoms of illness the rest of tuesday night or wednesday morning, i still decided to keep her home from school.  we spent wednesday coloring, reading books, painting, doing "arts & crafts," playing outside, running momma's errands around town, played with our cameras and took pictures, puzzles and she was completely bored out of her mind.  geez...


on wednesday kelby's class voted on a color to wear to school on thursday.  they voted for red.  mrs nancy called me on wednesday to let me know the vote results since kelby was not at school.  when i told kelby they voted for red she looked at me with disbelief.  i then spent the next 15 minutes listening to her complain about "why in the world would they vote for red?!?"  she knows for certain that so-and-so likes pink and so does so-and-so.  "why red?  well i guess i'm just going to have to stay home from school again because i am NOT wearing red!"  needless to say, we were a little slow getting out the door thursday morning due to issues with our wardrobe.  she ended up settling on a minnie mouse shirt that had red stripes and a red bow.  i'm pretty sure that as soon as she walked into her classroom she began interrogating her friends as to who exactly made the suggestion of red.


our towns team colors are black & gold.  i have a friend who's daughter is a high school cheerleader and i asked her if she had anything kelby could borrow.  she ended up lending kelby her middle school uniform and some other things.  my plan was to have kelby wear the top (that is about 10 sizes too big) with another shirt underneath.  she thought she would look funny and would not even entertain that idea.  all she wanted to wear (out of the big bag of options) was the bow.  i begged.  i pleaded.  no luck.  she walked out the door with a black and gold bow.  no need for pictures.  mom was sad that the last three days were a bust :(
