SPIRIT WEEK

My kids got the dressing up gene from me. Did you know when I was in fifth grade, I'd spend my summer days at the computer, typing what I was going to wear each day, down to my hairstyle, socks, and shoes? When banquet (our version of prom) came around, it was a blast creating my look for the evening. Weddings? I typically wore colors that matched the invitation.

So when my kids participated in Spirit Week, it was if I re-visited my childhood. If you're unfamiliar with Spirit Week, it's a time when students celebrate their school pride by participating in activities that lift the school's morale. Could you guess what the first day was?

ANSWER: COLOR DAY!

Thursday was Nerd Day. Maile made her NERDS box herself. Kalea chose his outfit. All. by. himself.

And finally, Friday is Pajama Day. It was fun seeing my kids select their outfits and put them together. I helped them here and there, but what you see is 90% theirs. Pretty neat!

Of course, I took part in Spirit Week. I had to! It's in my DNA. I chose 90s for decade day.
