all saints' celebration


vdm has an all saints' day celebration every year in which all the kids dress up as saints and give their speeches in front of the whole school. i was amazed and impressed at the fact that the entire kindergarten class was able to do this. some kids (including jack) spoke to the ground instead of the audience and one little boy temporarily froze (he paused, looked around, then yelled, "uh, i'm stuck!" before quickly composing himself and doing an excellent job), but they all did it and were so cute. why is it so funny to see little girls dressed as nuns? my favorite costume was probably the superman with fake muscles wearing a knights' chest plate and real wings for st. michael... good stuff. jack's favorite was a third grader who was st. sebastian with arrows sticking out of his chest. jack was st. peter, which his dad also was in kindergarten at st. thomas... we will have to try and dig up one of those pictures... jack's pose in these pictures is apparently from a picture in one of our saints books...

Jack, you did such a great job as St. Peter! I love the attention to detail with the iconography! Also, Annie Salasek as St. Therese kills me...she is the happiest kid ever!!
