Seriously. The day after Halloween should be a PD day.
But, on the other hand...the wine is uncorked and all is well again in the world :)
ANYWAYS! Despite the insanity, the kiddies had an exciting week. Here's a peek at some of our festive activities:
All week we hunted for sight words in our Halloween poem:
After estimating how many seeds might be in our pumpkin, we split into groups and counting seeds by 10s:
We brainstormed, predicted, estimated, counted, and, in order to complete the last box ("How should we carve it?"), I had to carve that darn pumpkin.
I am, without a doubt, the world's *worst* pumpkin carver. I paint pumpkins, decorate pumpkins...but when it comes to carving, this is what happens:
The picture even makes it look better than it is. I couldn't have spent more than 3 minutes on it before the kids explicitly questioned why I was "sweating and turning red." Not my cup of tea.

...In case I fooled you, it's not really poop from a ghost, it's just marshmallows ;)
And that about wraps up our crazy week. I am going to slowly drift into a candy coma...
