Colin was cold after a bike ride, but found a good spot to warm up.
Halloween is almost here and we hadn’t carved our pumpkins yet. Problem solved tonight. Three very fun designs.
With the Astros playing in the World Series, the school has permitted students to support their favourite team on game days.
Colin and I made a persimmon-ginger crisp on Sunday. I chopped the persimmons and ginger, and he did all the rest, including gently ensuring the crisp topping was appropriately distributed.
Yesterday was Nutcracker photo day. Laura sent us a couple of sneak peeks. Unfortunately, no sneak peeks of Cliff as Herr Drosselmeyer.
Laura has been working so hard at her flexibility for a couple of years, and has finally gotten her splits on one side. (And is very close on the other!)
As part of the student council election, Colin had to give a speech. He wrote it himself, practiced, and did a fantastic job delivering it. He did not win the Treasurer’s seat, but will still get to be in student council, and he is excited about that.
Happiness is a new Lego set. This kid hasn’t asked for any screen time since the box arrived.
We picked up a couple of boats for the weekend. It is so fun to get out on the lake.
Colin is running for student council Treasurer and had his campaign manager over on the weekend to make posters.
