Last night Kendall and I spent time together for her parent special making friendship bracelets! She did lots of braiding. She made me a beautiful multi-strand wrap bracelet and I made her a rainbow friendship bracelet - a la summer camp! It was an easy and quiet night as Ian rested from his gum surgery.

|I was channeling my years of overnight camp!|
Today started early for me...well it always starts early but today Ari awoke at 4:50 am. This does not bode well for me as the time change approaches. There will definitely need to be some tweaking to the sleep schedule for sure. So we played, had snacks and watched Mister Rogers until the sun came up!! We did not walk this morning as Ian really needed to sleep in due to his mouth surgery yesterday and I wanted to be here in the event that he needed something. I'll plan to walk later today with the children.
So, onward we move!! Today's journaling prompt is to design your own jack-o-lantern based on what kind of mood you are in. I gave the children free range of any products and let them have at it.

|At any given time THIS is what our table really looks like!|
Spelling copywork must get so boring sometimes. Especially on a double unit week like this one where they've been writing the same words for days. Today we're combining a fun and easy Fall themed craft with our spelling words! We made paper strip pumpkins complete with our spelling words and parts of speech. It kept the kids very entertained and happy all the while they are learning.
|Best kid snack - banana, peanut butter, Nutella and honey - with a tiny sprinkle of chocolate lucky charms for some crunch!|
|Wake up from nap the SECOND I left to bring the kids to yoga! I hate to wake him if I don't have to so he got a little bit of Daddy time before Ian went back to rest.|
We're all looking very forward to the Halloween festivities tomorrow!!
