What We Did Today!

Tuesday, October 31

Happy Halloween!  My thanks to all of you who came and joined us for our Halloween bash!  It goes by so fast that I feel as if I didn’t see the kids do any of the fun stuff like be wrapped like a mummy, or feeding the ghost.  I hope you had the chance to see your child bob for apples and try to eat the donut without hands. 

During the day, many of us made pumpkin bread.  I must admit that I wasn’t paying attention at first and we mixed the ingredients in the wrong order.  This is not a good thing if you are making pumpkin bread!  The texture was iffy, but it tasted pretty good (obviously not as good as normal or it would have been gone with only crumbs as a reminder!)

Outside, I saw several kids enjoying themselves climbing on the rock wall.  They are getting very good at this.  I saw Isla climbing back down from the top on the rock wall, now that takes practice!

We read about three of our “can do kids” – Bodhi, Eliza, and Addy.  The kids are enjoying this start talking about what they can do as well.  It is great to see their sense of self soar.  Ask your child if they are a “can do kid” next time you need something done, you may be surprised at what they can do!

A couple of kids checked out the pumpkin guts in the water, but most seemed to avoid it.  My thanks to Rachel and Brittni for all of their help today and to Jenny, Carl, Angie and Lisa, our witches covenant for the extra help with the party!  Happy Halloween!
