Dress Code

We have the most interesting dress code at our school. Children may dress as they like. They choose some amazing styles.

Diana in her ballerina dress. She thinks it is beautiful and wears it often. Mom is happy that she is willing to wear it over warmer, modest clothing.

Princess Diana. She loves to be dressed "pretty" which includes jewelry and gloves. It often also includes her fairy wings.

Accessories are important for the well-dressed princess or fairy.

You can never tell who might show up at the school table together. Today it was two super heroes and "Pastor John." As soon as Wesley got up this morning he asked Douglas if he could wear Douglas' new tie. So, of course, he had to wear a dress shirt too. The other boys told him he looked just like Pastor John (from their church) except Pastor John has different shoes. (Wesley has cool spiderman shoes!)
Pajamas are acceptable attire, especially first thing in the morning, or in the evening after dinner.
Even pajamas that glow in the dark!

Hats are OK, too. Grandma often asks them to remove them if she is taking pictures and wants to see their faces though.
Pirates are welcome.
Even those who are heavily armed. We have no metal detectors here...except for the new one Douglas bought himself to hunt for treasure.
Super hero in red is ready to fight for peace, justice, and the American way...or anything else that allows him to use water pistols, swords, guns, bow and arrows, or light sabers.

The Fearsome Foursome!  Douglas in red, Wesley in green, Diana is the ninja and Charles is Zorro.

Wesley, the green caped crusader.
Charles makes a handsome Zorro...even with barefeet.

 Diana is quite a ninja.

The children love to dress-up or be in costumes. They also love to be fairies (Diana), cowboys, Vikings, knights, Pa Ingalls and family, Daniel Boone, and of course, Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker (since they found light sabers at Goodwill). I love their imaginations and their play-acting.

Of course, they get it from their mother who also liked to dress up when she did her schooling at home oh, oh, so many years ago....
Their mom...Cortney.
