I used to despise spirit week at my kids’ school – probably because I had a daughter that wanted to participate each day. Dress like a grandma for the 100th day of school, wacky hair, dress like a twin…you know the list – most parent’s nightmare.
And then my boys came along and spirit week was somehow simplified (thank you PTO) and suddenly spirit week is fun again. Wacky socks, hat day, school pride day…all things my kids can happily accomplish on their own. Hunter is convinced every week should have a hat day! He’s got a large enough collection he wouldn’t have to repeat one for a while.
And don’t mind Cannon wearing a winter coat – he still thinks its chilly enough for his winter jacket despite it being 90 degrees all week long! He’s got Arizona blood. 🙂
