As we are half-way through (grrr... really? half of the year gone?!) Sally just gave us complete freedom and asked us to choose what we'd like to talk about.
There are many things I'd love to talk about, but I'll just share with you moments from the last days of school :)
On Wednesday the kids had a Medieval Fest - with a King, a Queen, a true feast (William baked the scones all by himself!), a chainmaille demo, and a knighting ceremony!
The child wanted to buy a costume - however, a costume in July is impossible to find. Our city used to have a store for costumes, but it closed recently and we looked through every store we could think of... nothing...
He was adamant he'll not get dressed up anymore - until I convinced him to give me some credit and this is what happened: a white tunic from mommy's closet, mommy's trapshooting belt with daddy's buckle (he was quite sure that "PSSA High Lady" is not going to be acceptable!), a pair of black socks knee length (mommy's again), his own leather shoes, a piece of black velvet with - does anybody recognize it?! yes, it's the piece from the Challenge of Music blog hop :)
When I was done and he saw himself in the mirror he exclaimed 'Wow! that's really nice!'. Phew...
|Chainmaille sample I had to make (he proudly explained it's a 4-in-1)|
|His buddy's uncle makes real chain maille stuff - he brought in this head piece, and a shirt too!|
|The letter 'Philip of the House of Townsend'|
wrote to His most reverend Lady
to be made the King's knight :)
|The 3 squires waiting to become knights|
|We present you Sir William!|
I am really curious on what everyone would pick for the week - and if you're too, please join me in finding out as we visit the gathering at Miss Sally!
Thank you for visiting :)
