Linking up with FLAP for yet again, another edition of What I Wore Sunday. I have no idea why I keep posting these...other than the fact that I feel like taking photos of an outfit give me a more objective view than just looking in the mirror. Plus, I might be getting a bit vainer as I get older. Actually, vainer is not the right work..probably more like conscious of my outward appearance and how it comes across to others. Because, like it or not, people do judge us by our clothes and appearance. I'm trying really hard not to fall into the frumpy, mid-30's, mom of several kids look...because no one likes that. I think looking at least somewhat decent and put-together helps give society a more positive view of what I do.
Anywhere, he is what I wore. Today's outfit is a definite fail and that orange sweater is going straight into the "give-away" pile...because people who are well-endowed should not wear turtlenecks.
So first I tried this....but I'm afraid that color combination is reminiscent of Ernie from Sesame Street.
It's slightly better without the cardigan...but still I'm getting rid of this sweater....it's way too short...and I said above, well-endowed people should not wear turtlenecks.
So, I feel like this outfit was a fail.
But, at least we do have some winners in the family. Yesterday we took the kids to a chess tournament and came home with these.
And here's one with their chess coach and a cute little future chess prodigy.
Greta and John as the Bentrup Homeschool Team won 3rd place in the K-5 Open/Rated Section.
John won an individual trophy for 3rd place (and he actually tied for 2nd) in the K-3 Rated/Open Awards. Not bad for someone only in Kindergarten...especially since he was playing a lot of 5th graders.
Heidi won 2nd place (tied for 1st actually) in the K-8 unrated awards. It's called K-8, but was basically just 6th, 7th and 8th graders and she actually played against kids all the way up through 12th grade. So, pretty good for only a 6th grader.
And, Greta won a ribbon in the K-5 rated section.
And, Elsa...well she's just biding her time until she's old enough to bring home her own trophies.
