Halloween at Aunt April's

Halloween and the day before were very busy for us! We started out the day before at LilE's preschool. Last minute LilE decided she wanted to be a ballerina instead of a kitty cat. Thankfully we had everything we needed.

Little Cora was especially cute in her elephant costume.

Then Cora and I went to Ethan's school where he received a merit award for being respectful, helpful and following the rules.

Then it was off to Aunt April's house! The drive was eventful but we made it and got to trick-or-treat in her awesome neighborhood where most every house participated in Halloween. We love that she lives so close now!

By Halloween LilE was back to being a Kitty Cat. Aunt April helped out by painting her face.

We had so much fun visiting Aunt April and can't wait to go back!

Pumpkin Patch and Halloween Preview

October is always a busy time for us because of all the pumpkin patch field trips! Our count is 2 so far this year.

With Ethan's Kindergarten we also got to pick and eat apples!

Picking out the best pumpkin.

For LilE's preschool trip we got to have a hayride! 

We used paper plates to represent what the kids will be dressing up as this year. Can you guess??? I'll give you a hint: it's the same as last year. Their idea, not mine but I'm not complaining. Makes it much easier for me.

LilE's First Dance Class

Today was LilE's first Dance Class (Tiny Twos). We thought class started last week so we got all dressed and arrived to find an empty building and locked studio. We got it right today. The class is closed so all the parents have to sit outside and watch the tv monitor. This makes taking photos pretty hard but I was able to snap a few when they came out to get a drink of water.

I think LilE had her ups and downs in class. At the beginning I could see her dancing around but toward the end she seemed to start losing it. I think her bow of her shoes came untied and no one would help her tie it. We will have to remember to tuck them in next week.

When I asked her if she wanted to go back next week she said yes!

She is the oldest and tallest in her class. Next session we will move up to the Creative Dance class with other girls her own age.

Lile's Bag

LilE needed a bag for her AWANA's group so of course I had to make her a Hello Kitty bag! Between the start of school and the baby not napping much it took me a few days but it was done by the first club night. I think she likes it.

I put her name on it and lined it with pink.

3rd day of Kindergarten.....Waiting for the bus.

3rd Day of Kindergarten...Riding the Bus

Yesterday we missed the bus. I didn't know what time it was to arrive and it passed by the house as we were walking toward the road. She apparently missed us, too, because she stopped about 50 yards from the mail box and was going to wait on us but cars started piling up behind her.

Ethan wanted to make sure we did not miss it today!

Apparently LilE and I were walking too slow. He had to run all the way! He was NOT going to miss it this morning.

He was so excited to ride the bus but he stopped after he got on just to tell me "I'm going to miss you, Mama."

After he left LilE started crying because she wanted to go with him. She said "When it gets night time where will Ethan sleep at Kindergarten? I want to take a bed to Kindergarten so he will have somewhere to sleep." So sweet she is so worried about him. I did explain it to her that he will be coming home at noon and sleep in his own bed.

Ethan's first day of Kindergarten

To my Son.....

To my Son on your 1st day of Kindergarten~

 You are the most awesome 5 year old I could have ever hoped for. You are sweet and thoughtful, kind and considerate, energetic and determined. Even though you love being at home you are excited to be going to Kindergarten and ride the Bus! This year will be full of learning and growing, for the both of us. 

Thank you for being in my life. I love being your mom! You will always be my little man. I love you, Ethan!
