Today we ventured over to Half Moon Bay for the second weekend in a row. We walked the main street because they were having their annual pumpkin festival. It is such a cute town and there were lots of things to keep our eyes, ears and mouths entertained. There were signs for pumpkin cookies, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin pie, pumpkin churros, pumpkin cheesecake and even pumpkin corn bread throughout our walk. I was in heaven! I loved the atmosphere and all the wonderful smells. The crowds were a little much at times, but it was still a good time. The kids enjoyed making little pumpkin out of clay on the Michael’s bus and they even gave me a $10 gift card. We also scored other yummy free treats along the way like pumpkin coffee, protein bars and candy. We ended our time with a bowl of pumpkin ice cream and a rootbeer float. We can definitely say we were spoiled!
I love when I get a chance to work on little girly things. This week my friend from Japan reminded me about the tutu we talked about and got me to thinking I better practice. I had a little leftover light pink tulle (she wants hot pink) from another project, so I made a go of it. It’s not done, but I’m liking where it’s going so far. I will add other cute touches and hopefully make a cute matching headband to go with it. Oh, goodness…I can’t wait.
Monday was Christopher Columbus day and I found lots of fun ways to learn all about Christopher Columbus and his voyages. I found a kid friendly book called Christopher Columbus by Scholastic and found a free online teachers guide to use with the book. Awesome! I also utilized other books from the local library, read the 1492 Poem and Columbus Song and of course the day wouldn’t be complete without some artwork.

Today we read about Naaman going to Elisha to be healed of his leprosy. He had to wash in the Jordan river 7 times and when he came out he was completely healed. The video is Corbin retelling the story along with a science experiment we did.
