Dressed up for Ansley's preschool Halloween parade.

Costume #2: Dorothy
(This is my costume from when I was her age)
We tried this on as a trial run for her school parade in the morning. As you will see in a few minutes, I made the mistake of drawing freckles on her face with marker.

We did not ask or prompt her in any way to pose for the pictures. She began this little dress hold curtsy all on her own.

Here is where seeing me draw on her face was a mistake. I started making dinner after the costume preview. The kids ran back to Ansley's room to play and after about 20 minutes out walked this...

A princess

And a lion. 
The marker would not come off with soap and water. After some frantic googling and a few tries, toothpaste is what finally took it off.

Trunk or Treat

Art & Science

I've been trying to be more intentional about doing activities specifically for Logan's developmental stage while Ansley is at school. This has only happened a handful of times. Logan REALLY enjoyed the last two we did.

Art day: Painting with cars

Science day: Playing with colored vinegar and baking soda

The weather has become beautiful these last few weeks. Being able to leave the back door open makes our backyard seem like an added play room. It feels like our house just doubled in size!
