Throwback Thursday to International Talk Like A Pirate Day! Did you talk like a pirate, mateys?!? Last year, this day was amazing, unexpected fun. The kids were totally into it; we read books, they made pirate hats, treasure maps, and played dress up all day, totally self-driven. This year was a bit more simple; word play to find out our pirate names, then Squidlips, Fluffbucket, Bucko and I (Scallywag) had a pirate-y poetry teatime.
