Colonial Day

I was busy last night. Today was colonial day in my classroom, and I needed a mob hat to complete my outfit. So, I grabbed an old t-shirt, cut a circle out, zigzagged some elastic cord about an inch from the edge, trimmed it with lace, and came up with this.

It was comfy, too.

This morning, I got up early to make cornbread for all my kids.

Yep, one for each of my students. I carefully wrapped them in paper, and they were a snack at the end of the day.

This is what the cornbread that I had with my chili tonight looked like, though. The cheese and bacon bits give it extra pop.

I think next time I'll sprinkle chives on top also. That will add just a hint more of color to the mix.

Mistress Morford. . . the colonial-ish school teacher. Yes, I wore the hoop skirt all day long. It was loads of fun. The school bus ride to our cafeteria at lunch was the most fun part! You should have seen me trying to squish my skirt in between seats, kids, and fellow teachers.Me with all my kiddos who dressed up. Check out the "knickers" on the guys!

  1. I love the whole colonial theme. How great! Have you ever made corn bread in an electric skillet? You put the batter in dixie cups and bake them inside the electric skillet for about 30 minutes. The kids think it's really neat.



Hi everyone! I am so glad that you dropped by. So, tell me, what did you think of this post?
