Emperor's Day

The weather was chilly and the competition for 3rd grade was long and intense, but we toga'd our 4 emperors and led them in a triumphal parade around campus.
Then they gave the sheets back so they could play kickball.
High school students, having just read the Lord of the Rings, were celebrating Middle Earth Day.  Even hobbits and elven-maids have to go to school.
I've always maintained that the best costumes are the ones assembled in less than half an hour.  Primigenitus bought brown polyester pants at the thrift store for $3.  Everything else was stuff we had on hand.
It was my first time ever for applying makeup to feet.
The Roman honey cakes were popular.  There weren't enough left to take over to Rhetoric and call them Beorn's honey cakes.

I saw those feet this morning and just laughed! Eyeliner (?) for hair! Glad they all had fun. Kyle hasn't said much about it yet.

I'm 63 years old but I'd gladly repeat grade school and high school if I could be in your classes!
