october events: school and halloween

I don’t know where October went. I really don’t. I posted four times in October and still didn’t cover everything that October had to offer. Here is what I missed:

Connor’s parent/teacher conference. It went really well. He excels academically, has good relationships with his classmates and follows the rules. I learned that he’s very organized (and saw the inside of his desk as proof). He keeps his things where they should be, and neatly. That’s my “everything has a place and there is a place for everything” in action. Love. It. And, he received Student of the Month. I’m very proud of him…he’s a wonderful little boy.DSC04645Emily’s preschool pumpkin picking trip. This took place on October 5th, October 12th, October 19th October 21st. It was canceled three times due to rain! We were finally able to go on a beautiful day and Grandmom ended up being able to go because she happened to be visiting NJ for the week.DSC04670 DSC04673 DSC04677 DSC04678Halloween school parades and trick-or-treating. I’ve had the kids’ costumes since August so I didn’t feel the rush of figuring out what they’re going to be and running around to several stores last minute as I have done in the past. It was easy this year because we went with Disney. Disney has a knack for making everything easier. Both Connor and Emily had school parades, thankfully on different days. They were excited to dress up with their classmates and march around and Camryn was happy to watch.

And last but not least, a picture of the kids right before trick-or-treating. This was the first year we all stroller, no wagon. They're getting older. Sigh.
