Young at 90...

Our school turns 90 this week. And in honour of this milestone all the stage-one (little) kids had to dress up today as either a 1920s or 1890s school student. They looked fabulous! Everyone had a bit of fun raiding the local secondhand stores for olde get-up. This is how E went to school:

It was not too hard to pull this one together: cap, $1, Vinnies Summer Hill; Shirt, $3, Marrickville secondhand store; waistcoat $1, Vinnies Summer Hill; (Scout!) shorts, $2, Vinnies Summer Hill; lace-up Clarkes shoes (a most excellent find), $4, Marrickville.

Tomorrow everyone has been asked to contribute to a cake decorating display. I must admit I thought this may be a bit of an ask on top of the dress-ups ... but I gave it a go and tomorrow E will take his cake to school to put in with the others.

So here's the school emblem, ripped from the corner of our newsletter:

Here's my 'emblem' cake, rendered in licorice.

A little wonky but I must confess to being quite proud of that effort!

Your little man looks adorable and that cake looks FANTASTIC!!! You'd better lock your fridge tonight or little people may sneak up to have a taste :-)
