Today Jack is celebrating the end of his World War II topic with a VE Day Celebration and all the children in Year 5 were asked to go in dressed up accordingly. We decided on him being an evacuee....easy option but hey ho, life is complicated enough!
Have been trailing around the shops in search of appropriate clothes and threw them all together yesterday, when Jack had a bit of a dress rehersal.
This morning he was full of beans and really excited- he is never ready and waiting at the door before me! At the last minute I had a bit of a brain wave and remembered an old (size 10) wool jacket I had from Top Shop years ago. I rushed upstairs, delved around the spare wardrobe and shook off the dust on the way down the stairs. Jack was thrilled with it- I rolled up the sleeves and thought it looked OK...so did Jack for a while...until he realised it was a "GIRL'S JACKET!!"
He wore it anyway, I think he was too cold not too.....those little legs looked mighty chilly on the way to school this morning!
Here is our little evacuee!!
