"well, aren't you sweet..." i replied, "thank you!!!"
i'm thinking i received the diet coke because he was thinking that i need some caffeine to get me up and going, ha!!! for, he had asked me last night if i would take katherine and him to school this morning so that he wouldn't have to leave his car there overnight tonight... as he and kat are leaving right after school today to go on a school trip to lexington for the state foreign language festival.
he and katherine were chosen to present their project, "the dog from pompeii", for judging in the latin project category...
and to, chico is entered in the roman costume category. oh, how i wish i'd had my camera when we got out to the jeep this morning, he placed the helmet he'd created on his head, grabbed his sword out of the back of the jeep, and struck a pose!!!
unfortunately, you'll just have to visualize... it looked like he had taken a baseball helmet, mounted a broom sans the stick atop it, and spray-painted it gold. now, i know why he HAD to go and buy his mom a new broom last week, ha!!! he had a pleather skirt his dad had sewn for him that he'd also spray painted gold as well as a painted sword he'd purchased while we were in florida and a shield he'd rigged out of an old satelite dish he'd found in his garage. i hope it was an OLD satelite dish... otherwise his parents may no longer be getting a television signal:?
he was a sight to behold!!!
maybe, katherine will get some pictures this weekend, and i will be able to share...
i just hope they will do well with their projects and have a great time!!!
further, i hope you will have a great weekend, too:D
