Its Daddy Donut Day again!

Almost a national holiday, Daddy Donut Day was upon us.  Before the holiday I got a chance to go spend some time with my son Matthew at his school.  There was enough sweet donuts to put me in to anaphylactic shock!

Daddy Donut Day

Here we have Matthew enjoying a nice healthy donut.  It was a good turn out, and it was interesting to see the kids in their natural habitat... roaming almost freely. 

Matthew's Class

Matthew gave me a little tour of some of his popular hang out spots around the school.  He seemed to know everyone at the whole school.  All the teachers knew him by name... and so many kids.  I know I was never that popular at school.  I got a chance to take a picture of Matthew and his class mates.  It seems like a very good bunch.

My Painted Face

A few months ago, we were at a small activity at Lakeview.  It was like a little Holiday festival with Hot Chocolate and face painting.    That and an overwhelming truck load of sugar laced treats that was sure to work up a frenzy in the most reserved of kids.  But not my well behaved kids... (yeah right!!)

Megan Flower

Megan:  "That is a beautiful flower with a crystal star in the middle." 

Megan Butterfly

Megan: "That is my butterfly... isn't it cute?"

Sophia (Not Sure)

Sophia:  "I don't remember what that is but it was very pretty"
Megan:  "Sophia you don't know what that is... thats just a heart with curls..."

Sophia Spider

Sophia: "That is a cute spider... I want to keep it forever!"

They passed out from sugar overdose that night.  All their talks about wanting to keep the paint for at least a few weeks or days on quickly faded...  By morning they awoke from their sugar induced comas and we were able to clean up the faces before they became clear headed enough to demand that we hire art restoration experts.  That was a close call.  Lesson learned?  Always carry handy wipes when on the run...
