Fun with the Kiddos
Jeff went to Louisiana last weekend to help with cleanup efforts after hurricane Ike. I wanted to do something fun with the kids since they were missing their dad and it was just mommy time. Brennan still had some chicken pox that hadn't scabbed over, so we were home bound. But, we made the best of it. We rented some movies, got a bunch of candy, built a fort and hung out together. The kids thought it was so funny to have their mom in the fort with them. What can I say. I like a good fort. Today I went to read to Jadyn's class. The school also had their annual fundraiser called the Tiger Walk. Pretty much you give money to the school and go watch your kids walk several times in a big circle in the parking lot while listening to music and doing cheers. I really don't get it, but it's something they enjoy. Each class is named after their teacher. Jadyn's is Agnew's Alligators. Brooke's is Page's Patriots. While reading to J.J.'s class, Mrs. Agnew was trying to talk Regan into being their mascot while wearing this costume. I think Regan was a little scared by the costume and wanted nothing to do with it. She had Jadyn try it on to show her how cute it was, but Regan had her mind made up. It is cute though, isn't it? Here's Brookie with her class ..... Jadyn with her class..... Regan and her friend Cara got in on the act and walked and danced along with them. I do think it is a strange fundraiser, but it was a very enjoyable day. It's one of those days when you just love being a mom.
