Ahoy there, me hearties. Last week the kids celebrated pirate day at school. Jack's teacher was all for it and loves it. I was a little hesitant. Aren't pirates vicious people who are still around today sailing around looking to steal and pillage? The little guy's teacher agreed but she went along with it for the kids. We put together costumes with things we had around the house the night before and that morning. They loved the finished look. Hooks made out of water bottles, pipe cleaners and tin foil. Buckles for their shoes out of tin foil. String to hold up their baseball socks because there was no elastic in those days. A vest for Jack made out of a cut up shirt of moms and the little guy with skulls (I hate skulls) cut out of printouts and double stick taped to his church vest. A scar made with mom's make-up and a cardboard and black paper with string eye patch finished the looks.
And you can't forget the mustaches I found at dollar tree- the only money I spend for the costumes- $1
Yes, school is in full swing. And we are busy. The weather is getting colder. Fall feels nice with a touch of Christmas being slowly mixed in. But, no way am I looking forward to another cold winter!
