We had our first spirit day on Wednesday. The motto was "Sock it to the SOLs" or "Let's knock the socks off the SOLs"... aka, Crazy Sock Day. Now, some of you are probably like my sister who asked, " How crazy can socks REALLY be?" True, true. Valid point.... for a stiff old adult who doesn't know how to have fun, I guess. ;) But, in the eyes of a 9-year-old, they can be PRETTY darn crazy! Danielle found 2 pair of knee-high striped socks for us at Target, so we split them and each wore one blue and one purple. To make it all the better, we also matched our entire outfit (jeans and a black shirt!). I can't even count the number of kids that were laughing hysterically or said "NICE SOCKS!" as they walked past my room in the morning at the sight (seriously!). Peter actually surprised all of us and participated with some mismatching, knee-high soccer socks! About 1/2 of my students wore crazy socks (some crazier than others!) but it's the participation and spirit that we're going for!
|I love that they're willing to be ridiculous with me!|
