Off to Florida (to enjoy the rain... YEAH!)

Alex and Mike's school had "Nerd Day" today. Alex tried his best to win the nerd contest, and I say- he's a natural. You can't see it in this photo, but his hat has a dinosaur on it, and he wore a Spiderman sticker on the back of his hand all day. Excellent touches, I thought. He wanted to walk around with his fly unzipped and let his shirt tail stick out of his open fly. I was concerned that I might get a call from the school.
Alas, someone else was nerdier than this and won...

Can you imagine what "nerdier-than-this" looks like? Apparently a fanny pack was involved. The other kid's mom must be so proud.

Tomorrow is "Pirate Day." He's going to shake off today's devasting loss and try again. I have to wake up at the crack of dawn to draw on a "real-looking" beard and mustache (how "real-looking" can it be if it's drawn on with eyebrow pencil?). I don't recall doing this stuff when I was in school. We did really goofy things, like Math and Science and stuff.

I'm leaving tomorrow to visit my mom in Florida for a week . Of course, they are predicting rain and thunderstorms there all week. Oh well, we'll still have fun! I probably won't post much while I'm there so have a great week, Everybody... Talk to you when I get back!

Have a wonderful time at your moms. Looking forward to hearing from you when you get back. I am sure your nerdy kids will be glad you are back too!!! Loved the pic of Alex...perhaps that can be used to your advantage at a later time.
