Okay. I'm back. I was at a music educators conference for a couple of days, which meant my husband had to babysit the kids and creatures. (I think he did a good job, because everybody and everything is still alive.)
He told me a funny story though, that I have to share. Today was the day that my son presented his Abe Lincoln report to parents. (Yes, I'm bummed because I had to miss it!) My husband said Bubba got out of bed right away, dressed in his tight black suit, put on his Abe Lincoln beard, and donned a black top hat.
"You sent him to school like that?" I asked.
"Yeah, why not?" my husband said.
"Well, he was supposed to change at school, not run around all day dressed as Abraham Lincoln!"
"Oh," my husband said. "But he looked so cute, I didn't have the heart to tell him to change. You should've seen him on the bus. He was a mini-Abe grinning from ear to ear, looking out the window."
I'm sure it was quite a sight - a boy with a beard! Let's just hope that Bubba's not going to want to go to school in his Luigi Halloween costume!
That is so cute. I'll bet he was proud and I don't blame him. I always admired Lincoln when I was a kid in school and learned about him.ReplyDelete
Lincoln was a great president!Delete
I would have loved to have seen him. Wonderful post.ReplyDelete
I wish my husband had taken pictures!Delete
I wondered where you were. I'm glad you're safely home.ReplyDelete
My life has been pretty hectic - between my life and my daughter's dance competitions, I'm having a hard time keeping up!Delete
Jumping in with both feet, right way to go about it.ReplyDelete
Too cute! I'm sure that caused some heads to turn~ReplyDelete
I can just imagine!Delete
I find myself chuckling reading (while sneaking a peek on the computer with the family around.) So cute :) He must be so happy, was his photo taken in the school bus with a big grin?ReplyDelete
No, unfortunately, my husband did not take any pictures. I would've liked to have seen that, too!Delete
What an adorable story. Sherry, I don't know how you manage to juggle so many balls. Keep it up. You're doing a fantastic job.ReplyDelete
Glad to hear Schultz liked seeing himself on Indy's Fur Babies page and post. :-)
