Boys! Where are the boys?!
Alida, thank you for bringing five items to hold back your hair, and then not using a single one of them.
Boys! Why are you horizontal?
Come on. Elaine, dear this is not American Gothic.
Okay, let me just run in here. I think the, oh, argh, never mind. Just a minute.
Wait, Patric are you wearing a hat?

If you are ever assigned Nevada for the second-grader State Box project, because you have that child that just doesn't care what he's assigned, just put "Andre Aggasi" in the famous people portion of the narrative report. Don't google image search for famous people from Nevada with your second grader. Or you will get the following: "Mommy! She needs to put some clothes on!" Brother.

He sat like this for the entire reading, squatting on the table.
Oddly, I didn't even really notice this until nearly the end of the story because I was busy being struck by the fact that Benjamin has recently grown into a teenager it seems.

Elaine. Straight to the closet after school--clothes changed, hair brushed, and ready to relax.

Fairy Garden update for the fall. Including a larger pot for Elaine, that may have a chance at growing some plants.
Some rosemary for Nicholas to brighten up the place a bit...
Alida added some paper snow after the arrival of her snowman.
And Ben continues with what seems like a master plan in his head each time we add something--it's fascinating.

A little glow-stick war-fighting, a pretty cool haunted house, hot dogs and hot chocolate, blow up things to jump on, a few nature hikes.
A campfire of course.
And their fearless leader. Happy after the tent was finally up....

Favorite Trick-or-treating moment number two: after I couldn't find red shoes for the devil, Dorothy stopped by the house and offered to trade. Dorothy in silver shoes--just didn't see her mommy agreeing to this, particularly when their whole family went together as the cast, her daddy was even a good sport about being the scarecrow.
