Old Folks at Home

This week is spirit week at the school and the theme for Monday was 'Old vs Young'.
My kids both chose to be 'old'.  What's funny is that they both did their own costumes, we barely lifted a finger.

But what is even funnier is that Calvin chose to be in character all day.  He walked slowly, he called the young people 'whippernappers'  and was generally believable as an old guy.  So much so that the high school drama teacher now has her eye on him.

He stayed in character so much that his teachers had to extend him patience as he slowly moved from the door to his desk with his cane.

It was pretty funny.  Sometimes, your kids can be a real source of hilarity.  (if their hair looks grey, it's baby powder).
