Last week the kids' school had a big concert for Canada's 150th celebration. The dress code for the event was "white & red". Most kids at the concert wore jeans & a red or white shirt with "Canada" on it. Chancery loves to get dressed up, & she first attempted to wear her fanciest dress, but it's more of a silver colour, so I said no; then she tried to wear another fancy dress, but it's hot pink, so I also vetoed that option & told her to wear jeans & a red or white t-shirt.
Not long afterward I was handed this paper...
Chancery was wearing a white shirt & a black puffy skirt. I decided that was ok since it was still following the dress code. I have a feeling this is just the beginning though!

Asher's school requires him to do some service hours each term, & he was a bit short, so this weekend he decided to help Chancery out by re-organizing her bookshelf. It was a disaster to start with, so I figured it would take about an hour for him to get it under control.
What I didn't anticipate was that once he finished the big bookcase, he'd then move on to the small shelves, the nightstand, & even under the bed! It took him 2 hours to get it looking like this, hopefully it stays clean for a while!
Asher told me, "I just made it look like how I'd want it if it was my room."
And when Chancery got into bed, her comment was, "I feel like I'm at a hotel!"
