Can you tell by my attitude that we have had a few? When Sky first started school I am sure I thought they were great.
Here we have weird hair and big glasses day during spirit week….
And of course the annual “Proudly South African”. I did enjoy this one last year…click here to see.
Tori was feeling a bit left out (just wait honey you have plenty dress-up days ahead) so I made it “ballerina day” at home. I know, I know how cool am I? Ha!
She of course had to change outfits periodically throughout the day...
Today Blake had to dress in “Circus Attire”. And when did I remember this little tid bit? Oh 45 minutes before leaving for school. Fortunately he is my easy going child and we just happened to have a clown nose lying around. (I like to dress up at home every now and again.)
Add a dash of face paint and some hair gel and whalla…..
Okay so he might not be winning any awards for the “best clown attire” but hey that is as good as it is going to get!

Living in Africa we get to see a lot of these…..
Here she is giving her best roar….
Big brother stepped in to lend her some tips…..
Even the Franzenfam pooch, Keba was frightened….
The girls were a bit more tame…..
My favorite moment was when Tori asked why God told Noah to pick both a girl and boy animal. I did what every good mom does in that moment and told her to ask her Dad. (She’s 4, I figure we have some time before the birds and the bees).
Here she is with her teacher who also directed the play.....
We are grateful for “Granny” as many of the kids call her. Tori’s school is a public preschool and Granny is a strong, bold Christian that prays with the kids each morning and has no qualms about sharing her beliefs!
Sarabi and Mufasa sharing the spotlight…. (there is that LK ref. again)
It definitely was the cutest lion sighting I’ve ever beheld….

No visits to places like this…..
(I figure if I put my veggie juice in a nice glass it will taste better)
No “My mom went to ____(insert some exotic place) and all I got was this lousy t-shirt", t-shirts for the kids.
I did have an idea of a shirt though. How bout this....
“Got Swine Flu?”
I know a Great Physician
Could come in varying shades of pink…maybe even a big pig snout on the front.
Think it’ll sell?
If you were to encapsulate your last 2 weeks, what would your “t-shirt” slogan be?
