Dawson and Minerva










I was going through some old Halloween photos today because I am working on a Halloween Through The Years layout (Stay tuned! We are making it for October's Play Group classes {not too late to sign up} and I'll be posting the layout later this week.). I came across some photos that honestly made me laugh out loud. They are from 2003. Dawson was in 4th grade. His teacher had called me and asked if I would come and tell a Halloween Story to the class during their party. I decided to do it up right! I dressed up like a witch, even painted my face green. I named myself Minerva and I spoke with a Scottish accent. I came into the classroom with a sweepingly dramatic entrance and introduced myself (Minerva the Witch) and proceeded to tell my story. I still can't believe I pulled it off. I had never spoken in a Scottish accent before, but thanks to my love of Braveheart, I did just fine. {wink}

It wasn't until AFTER the story that I told Dawson who I was. He really didn't even recognize me. It was a HOOT! I'll never forget that Halloween. I ran into several other moms, some of which are close friends of mine, in the hall that day and said, "Hello!" None of them recognized me either. What fun!

So, stay tuned for the entire layout. But in the meantime...enjoy a little bit of Minerva and Dawson in 2003. Ahhhhh, memories.
