Laissez Les Bon Temps Roullez
Last week Ty brought home some beads, actually they were stashed in his lunchbox of all places. He told me that the teacher gave these out to everyone in class for Mardi Gras and they were put away for safe keeping.
When I told him that I had saved some beads from prior years, his eyes lit up. I scavenged for the bag buried under a counter and came up with my stash. He immediately laid them all out on the floor and determined which one was his favorite (all of them).
After donning all the beads at once I rushed for the camera. I think I will wait about 10 more years before I explain to him some of the traditions of Mardi Gras as they relate to acquiring more beads. Innocence is bliss.
