Yesterday was 'dress as you favorite book character' day at school. Ben chose a book about dinosaurs, his next best favorite thing besides Transformers. Since he wanted to be Optimus Prime for Halloween and I was not about to attempt to handmake that costume, I was excited that I would still get my chance to test my creative skills. I am pretty pleased with the results and most importantly Ben loved it! He had tons of fun running around and roaring in this field after school. Looking at these images make me smile as I recall his delight.
Here he is that morning with his teacher, the old little old lady who lived in a shoe. When we first walked into the classroom Ben froze. He wasn't sure what to think....what had happened to his pretty, young teacher?
Now we are closely watching the weather in hopes that the rain will be gone this evening in time for tricks and treats. Happy Halloween!
