The Duchess

For some reason unbeknownst to us mere mortals (parents) our school has a thing called "Spirit Week" this week. The senior kids chose a different theme for each day and the kids were invited to dress up accordingly. We've had Pyjama Day and Twin Day and today is Someone Famous Day.
Poppet racked her brain until she came up with Kate Middleton. She's a bit of a fan (who isn't?!) and I liked the idea of grabbing a fascinator and being done with it.
Here is our Duchess...

She's been so excited about this particular day, even asking me to postpone a haircut so she looks more authentic. Getting ready this morning was fairly angst-ridden, and she was nervous walking the four blocks to school with her veil but once we arrive her classmates pounced on her with a million questions. Pity Poppet's shyness will prevent her from using the cute British accent she was using over breakfast. She won't even speak Australian anymore! Sigh.

Tomorrow is 60s Hippy Day and Friday is Fancy Formal Day. I assume the Grade 7 girls wanted to frock up for that particular occasion.

Now, if anyone could tell me what Spirit Week actually means...


  1. Spirit Week sounds to me like it could mean "Getting into the spirit of things". Maybe?
    X Kate

    1. Yeah, that's our interpretation. Child is dressing up for every single event even though it's optional...
