Spirit Week is the week leading up to Homecoming & means a lot of costumes, which the kids love, but is always a little challenging for the parents!
Tuesday was “Sports Day”
Thursday was “PJ Day” (which also happened to be the day Audrey’s class went to the pumpkin patch! Nothing like jammies at the farm!)
Friday was “School Colors Day”, so the kids wore their school gear! It was their Race for Education day, which is the big fundraiser that they do at our school! They have the different grades come out & run (or walk) around the track for 45 minutes. At the end, they get a cookie & juice and their are prizes for the students who ran the most laps. I was there helping out wherever I could, but managed to sneak in a few pictures of Audrey. Sadly, I was busy with other things/forgot when Ezra was running!

I also ran a lap with Ezra. About half way through, he said to me, “You can walk across the grass & go back over to your friends.” I said, “Oh, do you not want me to run with you?” He replied, “No, it’s okay.” But as we rounded the final bend, he said, “Bye, Mom! See you later!” I had been dismissed.
The high school had different dress-up day themes, so Micah & I also had to come up with costumes. I forgot to get pictures each day, but as you can see in the previous picture, Micah had glasses & a different hairstyle.
Friday was “50’s Day” in the high school!
The only other day I took a picture was on Monday, which was “Dress to Unimpress Day”. My husband is not only wearing a onesie, which would be odd in its’ own right, but he is wearing a poop emoji onesie!!!! I about died when he tried it on Sunday night. Apparently, the students were asking him to wear a onesie (these are popular with the students – not sure why!!!) & then his boss mentioned that he had seen this particular one, so it all came together.
