Abuela texted inquiring if we are OK due to the lack of Halloween pictures. We are still alive and well, just a little busy and that means less time to blog. SS woke up at 6:15 a.m. yesterday on her own, with a smile on her face, and wished us a Happy Halloween. The magic of costumes and candies.
With Principal R and ready for Flag Day and the very anticipated parade.
SS is always making super hero poses, but what a thrill for her when she can do it wearing a costume. Just witnessing her unadulterated joy filled my emotional tank for weeks. Even if I had to endure that silly Flag Day nonsense. Also, it annoys me when the kids are instructed to place their hands over their hearts for the Pledge of Allegiance. In my case, for religious reasons that is a no no, and I'm sure there are others there. DO NOT insist my child does something without consulting me first. JJ didn't and neither will SS. They are as American as the other kids, and no less patriotic (as if the kids have a clue what that means), they just have one parent raised with a different set of beliefs. Last time I checked I have the right and freedom to pass those on to my children, until they are old enough to understand and decide on their own. And my adult son tells me it is the right call because it allowed him to understand not just follow blindly. BTW, I have never seen P do the hand over the heart thing in twenty years, and no one accusses him of being unpatriotic.
Exhibit 2, a one piece costume. That is one cool costume.
SS once again saying hi to one of her peeps.
LOVE this pose, SS has a thing for posing on benches.
And that was it for our evening. P and I had planned an outing that evening but were too tired to go. Aging really sucks big time. SS had a long day, wiped out at around 9:00 p.m. and slept until 10:00 this morning. She had a long but good day, mission accomplished.
SS wanted me to take a video of her moves to send to P. Then she ended up with these kids around her. It's funny because there were so many Power Rangers around, but kids were drawn to her. Maybe because she is a girl wearing the not pink costume? Odd.
