School Days: Fall Pep Rally

SCR hosted their fall pep rally on Halloween afternoon. I managed to make it there just in time: Rory was picked to play one of the games!

The cheerleading camp kids performed first. Myril, Alcee, Maddie, Claire, and Ansleigh all participated and did great.

Then it was the scream-off to see which classes would win the two spirit sticks. Man, that was a loud few minutes.

After that it was time for the games. The teachers went first, in pairs, and tried to make the best toilet paper mummy. Too funny. Then some kids (including Brennan) attempted to carry a little pumpkin between their knees and drop it into a hula hoop on the ground in a relay race. Hysterical.

Then it was Rory’s game. He and his teammates had to stack orange plastic cups as high as they could. They did a great job (with help from Ms. Milene) and came in second place. I also noticed that Rory stood back at times to evaluate and inspect the work being done by everyone else. My sweet little supervisor!

Last Dr. Speeg announced the spirit stick winners. Third grade won for the lower grades! They were so excited.

I’m glad I was there to get pics, but I can’t say I’m chomping at the bit to go again anytime soon. Those kids are crazy.

Then again, it could have been because of Halloween. Who knows.

Halloween 2018

Nola and Nopsi put together another fun Halloween themed dinner the Sunday before Halloween. The kids loved seeing Nopsi dressed up as a gory chef. And we had orange brains and wormy dirt for dessert!

Halloween night was equally as fun. We went to Ashley and Greg’s house as usual. The weather was great, and the kids racked up with candy, which they commenced trading as soon as we got back to the house.

2018 Boo Bash

This year’s Boo Bash was held the Saturday before Halloween. It was awesome not to have to rush around after school and instead have all day to relax before getting ready for the parking lot party. Riley dressed up as the Grim Reaper this year, and Rory was a skeleton again. Strange to see them both in masks, although they did not wear them much at all.

We shared space with the same 4 families as last year. Dana and Heidi came up with the idea of decorating our booth with a Saints theme, complete with a second-lining Tom Benson (who was a great photo op all night long) and tombstones of the teams we beat this season. It was all thrown together in about a week and it came out looking so great.

The kids, as usual, had an absolute blast for three straight hours. They’re at the ages now when they can go off by themselves, and we don’t have to worry about them. We simply told them to stay inside the parking lot and check in every now and then. Winning.

Rory did want to go trick-or-treating a couple of times, so Kenny and I walked around the lot with him while he racked up lots of candy. We also got to see the award-winning pumpkin, carved by Cole and MJ’s dad Gary.

And check out who won the booth contest……

…..WE DID! After missing out on the fair booth win last year, Heidi and Dana were SO excited to win something. And everyone said we totally deserved it.

Such a fun night all around. We love Boo Bash!
