This is Red Ribbon Week. Each day is assigned a different theme. Monday was “Follow your Dreams” and the school children wore their PJ’s. Tuesday all of the kids wore their red uniform shirts for “Wear Red Day”.
Today, however, is my kids’ favorite day! The theme for today was “Color My World Drug Free”. Students were allowed to dress wacky and in colorful clothes.
Griffin wore a clown wig, a soccer sock, a sock with a penguin on it, one school shoe, and a soccer cleat.
In addition to this, he wore a Christmas tie that plays music. He has been instructed NOT to push the button that controls the music. It can’t be shut off and once it starts, it plays the entire song. However, as he was getting out of the car, he “accidentally” bumped it. I give him an hour before he “accidentally” bumps it again and gets it taken away.
Ruthie sported a tee shirt that was in Griffin’s drawer. It had previously been my cousins’. Griffin loves that shirt and he wears it at every given opportunity. Ruthie, however, thought it would be wacky for a girl to wear camouflage. Dan would not understand her logic as camo is an essential part of his wardrobe.
In addition to this, she put the shirt on backwards (although you can’t really tell as there is writing on both sides of the shirt). She wore her shorts inside out, the match to the penguin sock that Griffin was wearing, a fuzzy sock, and two of my old shoes. She choose to wear them on the wrong feet. She assures me, she can walk in them and participate in P.E. today. I am waiting for the school to call me and tell me otherwise.
Now as if that wasn’t enough, we had to do something with her hair…
May I present to you the Bun Hawk!
Ruthie found the idea for this at www.cutegirlshairstyles.com/.
We often use this website for hairstyle ideas.
We choose to add our own twist to the Bun Hawk. We sprayed each section and bun a different color. So when we were done, she sported a purple, blue, and red Bun Hawk.
Now if that isn’t wacky, I’m not sure what is.
