At Laura Kate's school they have an annual book character parade. Every student chooses a favorite book character to portray and then they have a big parade outside behind the school. It was so fun to get to be apart of this with my girl. I got to eat a picnic lunch with her and hang out in her classroom for about an hour before the parade started. I was so thankful for that time just with her.
LK chose to be Anne of Green Gables because we are reading the book together right now. I was mistaken on the day of the parade so I ended up having to really scramble to come up with a costume for her. Nonetheless, I managed to turn a bed sheet into a dress and some red yarn into braids. I thought she looked darling!!
Later that week, the boys had a field trip to the Pumpkin Patch at their school. Shepherd loves Halloween and Fall so much because everything is orange. He, no joke, asked me every day for weeks when it was Pumpkin Patch day. Fischer was excited too and they both ended up having a blast!
The Pumpkin Patch is actually on the property of the church where the boys school is. There is a bouncy slide, they had a story reading, and learned about the pumpkin plant and how they grow from a seed. Then they were allowed to pick out a pumpkin and decorate it.
Kyle met Archer and I up there and it was so fun spending the morning with my boys!
