Okay, not really. It is "I Love to Read" month at school and every Friday is a different theme. And today was Favorite Character Dress Up Day. We didn't plan ahead (we figured things out on Tues...which didn't allow much time to pull "costumes" together), but I think you'll agree, they both worked out:
Finnegan is Kai, the red Ninja, from the Ninjago series (see the book he's holding for a reference) and Korri is Pinkalious from the Pinkalious series (see her book for reference). We only had to buy a sword for Finn and wand for Korri. But to be fair, Finn was the red Ninja last year, so he already had the shirt and ties.
They were both super excited and super cute! I think it is a really neat idea to relate to a character that you read about in this way. So fun! And it is like getting to do Halloween twice a year :)
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
