There was a Renaissance Fair at our school and Dallas competed in the Shakespeare recitation. He did St. Crispin's speech, "...men of England asleep in their beds will think themselves accursed..."! He got second place, but most people weren't there to see it. So imagine our surprise a few days later when they called him up and awarded him 2nd place in front of the whole school with a prize of $20! There was a big cheer and it was so fun! He also won best costume with his Renaissance get-up, but I didn't get a picture of it, and he really didn't deserve it anyway. His friend Ben had a more authentic, hand-sewn by his mother, costume and should have won if he had known about the contest :(
Another soccer year done. I just love being out on the fields during these fall evenings, even if it is inconvenient. We're so glad it's done, but everyone had fun while it lasted. Each week it got dark earlier and earlier, so I showed that in the following pictures. They always have so much fun they stay until they can't see hardly anything!
Charles at a Leia game. She liked playing soccer and had a really good time, but wasn't very effective and got hurt often. Her last game she got kicked so hard she was bleeding and couldn't walk and Pat was reffing, and I was at a different game, so the other mom's took care of her. My poor girl!
