Happenings This Week

So I'm trying to get a move on with this blog, it's been a pretty busy week for us. 
In honor of Literacy Week (1/23-1/27), my children were asked to dress up as their favorite book character for school.  As you can see we whipped up a couple of quick outfits the night before, but I think they turned out pretty good, for last minute that is.  (My 10 year old decided not to participate).
Dorothy & Peter Pan
On Wednesday, they dressed as their favorite idiom.  So for example, my daughter went as "under the weather".  She created some weather cutouts and tied them around a headband with pipe cleaners.  Came out pretty cute.  My 5yr old tied some string around a few of my daughters toy horses and carried them around, can you guess?  "hold your horses".  And finally, my ten year old cut out the words "GO" and taped them to the outside of his arm - "go out on a limb". 
Anyway, I may be bias but I thought that they were all pretty creative.
Today is the last day for Literacy Week, so it was dress up as a vocabulary word.  Once again my oldest didn't participate, (late night for him due to a field trip), but the others did.  My daughter chose "popcorn" and my son "ocean".  Hopefully if everything is still in contact when they get home from school I can post a pic.
Well, I hope all of you had a prosperous week.  If any of your children celebrated Literacy Week, I would love to hear about it!
~God Bless~
