Backwards Day!

In continuing the Spirit Days, we came up with Backwards Day! The slogan for this day was, "You need to know your information forward and backwards!" It turned out to be a lot harder than one might think to dress for Backwards Day. Sure, I could have just thrown on a t-shirt backwards, but where's the fun in that? :)
It took me about 20 minutes the morning of Backwards Day (May 11) to finally decide upon a white shirt backwards with a big backwards belt (after trying a skirt, a dress, 2 different shirts and backwards jeans). I did have my capris on backwards at one point, but it was not obvious enough to make it worth the discomfort!! Backwards Day turned out to be very successful because it did not take a lot of planning ahead from the kids' perspective.... in other words, of the 18 students who showed up to school and had completely forgotten about Backwards Day, 17 of them just flipped their shirts around in the bathroom before coming down to the classroom! :)

It was awkward when someone walked into the school and saw us getting pictures taken of us from the backside. :)

  1. It was a lot more uncomfortable than it looked and we are definitely nixing that day next year! ;)
