Animals and Careers

Wednesday - Career Day

Caitlin wanted to be a vet "just like Ms. Tamorah". Dr. Tamorah is a friend of ours and the mommy to Caitlin's best friend. Caitlin has seen her in scrubs, but usually she sees her in regular clothes with a lab jacket. So that is what inspired her outfit. It took her almost half an hour to pick out the perfect shoes to go with the outfit. :/

Dominic is rather obsessed with all things Legos. His dream job would be to have a real job being paid to play with Legos. So he has learned everything he can about Lego professionals.
If you look closely, you will notice that my son didn't even get through breakfast before getting dirty. There really isn't such a thing as a clean boy in our house. It's just varying degrees of dirty.

Thursday - Animal Day

Dominic wanted to be an owl just like the one that came in his stocking this year.

Caitlin and I saw a picture of a girl dressed very similar online while we were looking for ideas. I was all for it, since it was so easy to implement.
 Caitlin's class, minus one.
Friday is always pajama day. And for some reason I didn't get pictures of that. You would think that would be the easiest and least stressful morning since they don't have to get dressed. But sadly that isn't the case. So pajama day we were almost late for school.

Tuesday - Nerd Day
Oh my word! We had so much fun with this one. 
I'm not sure if I should be horrified or proud, but my kids are amazing nerds.

Dominic totally got what a nerd was. And cracked us up for days with his imitations.
Dude makes a great nerd.
 Caitlin didn't quite grasp the definition, but she mimicked Dominic which was cute.
 These are the cutest nerds!
Here are a couple of pics I stole borrowed from the school site.

Spirit Week

Every year, the first week back to school after Christmas break is Spirit Week.

We've really had fun with the themes that were picked this year. 

Monday - Crazy Hair
 Caitlin's request for crazy hair was to have each strand of hair that I braided be a different color. The hairspray color that we have is a bit difficult to work with. We'll have to try something else next year. So we compromised by having these extensions on both sides that I wove into the braid.
Crazy kid - crazy hair!
