I love that my kids love to dress up.I wish I'd provided the big boys with more dressup clothes when they were younger. But they're pretty good at improvising anyhow.
A few weeks back it was 'Book Week' at school and the kids were encouraged to dress as a favourite book character.
Jasper is Leif from Deltora Quest, which I haven't read but I am so proud of him since he has almost finished it; a hefty book and his first real large novel. He spent a long time drawing 'gems' for his belt.
As you can see the Witchard capes are still getting a good workout; in fact Charlie's is going back to school this Friday when he dresses up for his role as 'creepy narrator voice' in his class presentation of Thriller. They've been working on it all term, I can't wait.
If you have tween-age kids in your house you too may be familiar with the TV show Horrible Histories. We now have a series on DVD and our boys are obsessed.
A couple of nights ago Charlie and Jasper came bouncing down from 'quiet reading time' before bed to present their own Horrible Histories show to us.
It was a bit dark so the photos are not great but worth recording for posterity.

They work as a team. Ah, I love these boys.
