I can't believe I didn't blog about this waaaay back in 2006! Probably because the girls were this age...
...in 2006. To be completely honest, those years are just a blur to me. I can't be held responsible for anything that happened between Sept 2003 and Sept 2007.
Anyway...back in March 2006 Bubba was in Kindergarten and we were introduced to our elementary school's tradition of The Transportation Parade. Every March the 6 year olds study about transportation. And every week after Spring Break they have a parade and all the 6 year olds wear a homemade mode of transportation and walk the halls of the building with the older kids watching and cheering them on. It's So! Much! Fun!
Until the reality hits and you realize that before they can parade around in their homemade modes of transportation...you have to make a mode of transportation.
Because they don't sell these things at Target.
Trust me. I checked.
Here's what we came up with for Bubba...
...and it worked!
And by the time we went to bed last night, the S.S. Drama Queen was ready for her maiden voyage.
The girls couldn't have been more excited!
All the kindergartners were corralled in the cafeteria waiting for the parade to start. It could have been chaos...but it wasn't. As excited as they all were, they held it together pretty well.
