School Spirit

Annie's high school is celebrating Winter Homecoming this week. With that they have several spirit days through the week. There is "Hip Hop Tuesday", "All around the World Wednesday", "Decades Thursday", and "School Spirit Friday". Today was "Senior Citizen Monday". My Annie has no fear. Here she is, as "Carol", the Senior citizen.
She not only had a wig to enhance her looks, she used pillows for her wide rear end and tummy. She thickened and darkened her eyebrows and she had made a little "Life Alert" that hung around her neck. At one point she "fell" down a busy hallway very over-dramatically. Moaning the way down, then letting everyone know she was okay, she had her "Life Alert" on. She cracked up her friends and teachers all day. Many students didn't know what the heck was going on as many kids could care less about spirit days let alone school spirit. Annie was often the only student in a class that was participating in these events. She doesn't care. She is having a blast. Some of her friends are too fearful of embarrassment to take a chance and have fun with it. Annie loves to have fun.
I will try to post you with the rest of the week. Decades day she is wearing MY Floral jeans (didn't every girl have a pair in 1981?

Ha,ha, What a great kid! I wish there were more like her. Bet her friends admire her fun spirit too. Annie sounds like she is good therapy for you too J. :D

I loved my floral jeans. They're long gone, though.

Hey, you don't have to embrace change. Who does? It's scary.

That's life, isn't it?

At first I thought it was Carol Burnett, one of my favorites. God bless her. The fact that she does what makes her happy and isn't worrying about being embarrassed is fantastic. Love your spirit for life Annie, Aunt Deb.....

Annie is great! She has a video up on her buddy's Facebook of her in her oldie getup.
Yesterday they had Hip Hop Day, but many got frustrated as the VP was having a fit with all the baggy pants, she & others jsut said forget it for that. Today is a snow day so they will be skipping Around the World. I hope that she has Decades Day tomorrow. She looks adorable in my jeans! will post pictures if she does!
