Today we begin our hunt for uniforms.
Here's what's on my list:
white pants (or skirt), white sweater, red vest
Tuesday through Friday:
blue pants (or skirt), blue sweater, red vest
full navy blue track suit with red stripes in the arms (they call those pants here in Mexico - it's like saying pants in english - but a spanish accent. It's kind of awesome). Also, regulation T-shirt.
red suit, red flip-flops, red swim cap.
And of course, everything must be embroidered with the school emblem and/or names; don't forget the swim caps.
The sidewalk in front of the school is lined with uniform vendors. Apparently some vendors are better than others; I got a tip from a helpful mama who told me to get my pants from the vendor named Señora Mari, and that the bookstore across the street that also sells uniforms is a little bit pricy, but will pretty much have everything we need.
Whoah. let's do this.
