The boys participated in the literary parade today at their school. They dressed up as book characters and brought in that character’s book for everyone to enjoy reading.
Hamilton didn’t seem up for much dressing up, so he choose his God’s Wisdom for Little Boys book, which has lots of pictures and scenarios of little boys. One of the pictures shows a little boy in jeans with a backwards cap* on, so that’s what he decided he wanted to do. I convinced Collier to be Peter Pan, since we already had that costume and the accompanying book. So cute.
As the boys marched in their parade, they sang some of their school songs and played instruments. Such a fun idea, and the rain held off long enough to get in two laps before they marched back in to start their school day.
*The cap Hamilton was so excited to wear is Mr. Morgan’s that Papa Joe gave him from Memphis Stone & Gravel. Somehow remembering from long ago that it was Papa Joe’s, Hamilton made up a little song in the car on the way to school about Papa Joe and working on roads, building roads, etc. That boy sure loves to sing.
