Trick or Treating at U-high

I took Garret and Nixon Trick or Treating at U-high, the high school by our house. The students bring candy and stand outside their classrooms and hand it out as the kids go around the halls. Nixon refused to wear his costume, but he didn't refuse the candy. He was in heaven. It was hard to keep him walking to the next classroom because he wanted to stop and eat his candy. We met up with Garret's friend Tucker and he was Spider Man too.

Time For a New Costume?

I was taking Tanner and his friend Max Clark to scouts the Tuesday before Halloween. I asked Max what he was going to be for Halloween and he told me that he was going to be a Mad Scientist. Then Garret said "my mom is going to be a witch" to which Max quickly replied "as usual". This is my 8th year being a witch. Apparently it is time for a new costume because even the neighbor boy knows that I have been a witch for the last few years.

Funny Things the Kids Do and Say

Garret was out on a nature walk with his preschool class. His teacher gives them a brown paper bag to pick up things they see along the way that they like, like pine cones or leaves. Guess what Garret picks up on his walk? Garbage. I think my OCD for cleanliness is rubbing off on him.

Katie and Garret were playing in Katie's room the other day. Garret was dressing like and princess and twirling around. Katie said to him "You know you're not a princess. You're actually just an ugly little boy." Such sisterly love.

Tanner Broke His Thumb

Tanner broke his thumb playing football. Luckily it was his left one. He was out for half of the football season, but he did get to play in the last game of the season. He was still able to play soccer. He just had to wrap a towel around his cast so he wouldn't hurt anyone if he hit them with it.
