Normal October life

Life sometimes gets swallowed up with the laundry and cooking.  Thought I would try to remember a few fun moments that happened.
 We made a big sprinkle mess while decorating cookies.  There may have been one child (that one being William) that filled his cup up with sprinkles and tried them straight.  He got tired of them pretty quick.
 We tried to go to the Scarecrow Festival, but when we realized it was canceled we headed to Wheeler Farm.  We took a fun wagon ride, met a sweet week old calf (Caleb named it Milkshake) and collected some leaves.
 Halloween pumpkins....foam stickers make things so easy.  But the kids keep begging to carve them too.  Humph  We have a princess, a fox, a skunk, a raccoon, two bats, and Peter's crazy pumpkin.
 Caleb outgrew his old bike and passed it on to Peter.  Caleb was able to go to Pa's house and get one from Pa's yard sale stash.  It fits Caleb much better.
The boys put their creativity to use for the school's Reflection program this year.  The theme was "The World would be a better place if..."  Caleb did two projects.  One was in literature.  He wrote a poem about the world/nature.  His other project was in photography.  He took pictures of each of our family members and his statement was, "The world would be a better place if people smiled more."
Peter wrote up how the world would be a better place for him.  It was entitled, "The things that make me happy."
William did a diorama of donut falls.  He also had some animals that he loves to see at Scofield.  Of course he has a rainbow in there.  It was entitled, "If there were more beautiful places."  They all did a great job of using their creativity and were happy with their projects.
Well, last night was the "Night at the Museum" and surprise, surprise: Caleb won an award for each of his entries!  Wow!  He was pleased and we are proud of him.
 Up next, Halloween.......The Medieval Times
