This week has been "Catholic Schools Week", and the boys have been having a lot of fun!
On Monday, they got to wear sports shirts. Tuesday was Pajama Day and a field trip. Wednesday was Red, White, and Blue day - very patriotic. Andrew said they had to wear those colors because that's the colors in the "Grand Old Flag", which is the only way he refers to our flag (so adorable!). Thursday was Career Day, and today (Friday) is Mismatch (or "mixamatch" as Andrew says) Day.
The boys are wearing CRAZY outfits today; two different socks, two different shoes, crazy hats, and outfits that don't match at all (pretty much how they normally look when Dad dresses them!)
As for Career Day yesterday, Andrew (age 4) wants to be a priest, and we had a St. Francis costume from All Saints Day last year, so we dressed him as a Franciscan priest. At school, he got to lead ALL the prayers and gave his friends a blessing in the chapel!
John-Paul (almost 6) wanted to be an astronaut, but I was no way crafty enough to figure out how to dress him for that, so he said he would dress like a builder (my Dad is a contractor, and the boys always think it's so cool that he has so many tools and can fix anything). During the day, John-Paul said he liked being a builder, but he had to take his tool belt off when he sat down because it hurt his bum! Then he told me that he has a long time to think about what he wants to be when he grows up, and he can still change his mind.
And I'm sure they will - many, many times!
