We’ve Got Spirit! Yes We Do!
This is Homecoming Week at school and I’ve been recruited to help decorate The Girl’s classroom door. My first plan was to get Eldest to draw a picture that would represent our football player and the other team’s demoralized mascot but soon realized between football practice and homework there would be no way he could get the job done.
So I did what I always do in situations where I’ve over committed myself. I cried out to one I knew could help me.
(The wonderful husband gene in him can’t resist the
annoying, whiny, pleading tone of my desperation.)
And y’all, all I can say is that Luke is a stinkin‘ Genius.
He took our Homecoming t-shirts, made a copy at the church, made a transparency of the copy, borrowed an overhead projector from the school, blew up the transparency, and then traced the entire figure onto poster board. And finally, last night he and I colored like school children for two hours.
It was truly fun.
I’m not kidding.
So this is what we have so far. Today, I am going to gold glitter the jersey and gloves of the player and then try to cut it out without massacring the entire thing. The boys protested loudly over our football player having glitter but I think it will give him some pop and make the door stand out. And besides, it’s Kindergarten, people! They love glitter!
Okay, so I’m off to work…I’ll show you the finished door when we get done today!
That Luke of yours is talented!
And coloring IS fun! We just need some coloring books of stuff I want to color…not dinosaurs, tractors and Ninja Turtles :)
Can’t wait to see the finished product!
Fall, football, homecoming, markers and glitter ahh! Brings back some fine memory’s
Oh!!! Excellent job…what a good man you have!
I’m so impressed by hubby’s ingenuity!
I love the protest of “glitter” by the son. Good times!
Not to mention that he had to go out in search of the overhead projector! I was painting at the church yesterday and he was looking for it in every nook, cranny, & closet. And at our church, you know that a huge job that is!
What a guy!
Looks great so far! I can't wait to see the finished product!
It’s looking great! That’s how a friend of mine did her child’s room…all in Winnie the Pooh!
You are way too fun. I love me some Homecoming week!!!
What fun! It’s looking good so far, and I totally agree with the Kindergarten version of a football player with some glitter. :-)
You go girl! I know you’ve had a ball. :) However, if I might make a suggestion…cut out, then glitter. If you glitter first, then cut, you’re gonna have glitter everywhere! (I’m an old school teacher.) blessings, marlene
That does seem like a lot of fun!
Just started reading your blog since the Siesta Fiesta and absolutley love it. Kindred souls are we. My Eldest is all about football in 1st grade! Youngest all about tractors. You truly brighten my day with your stories! Wish I had a blog to do the same!
Thanks for sharing all (well almost all!)
