My husband, the kids, and I visited a corn maze last weekend. In the second photo of my children, they are pretending to be lost. It's become kind of a tradition. The last photos are of a guinea hen named Lavender and a peacock named Hemingway. Who knew that peacocks and guinea hens enjoy pumpkin?
We finished up our crown descriptions this week. I had grand plans to get them up on a bulletin board, but it hasn't happened yet!
I'm reading aloud Poppy to my class. I've reached the part where the main character, a mouse named Poppy, meets a grumpy but hilarious porcupine named Ereth. The kids were laughing so hard at Ereth's sassy speeches that my instructional assistant and I started laughing, too. Do you have a favorite read aloud?
We had parent conferences Thursday and Friday this week. On Thursday morning, my friend/colleague brought me this! The inside of the card read, "EYE thought you might need a treat."
Have you heard of Operation Christmas Child? The idea is to fill a shoebox with gifts. Then the boxes get shipped all over the world. We've started getting our boxes ready, and we're having a blast! I plan to do three girl boxes and three boy boxes for different age categories. As you can see, I'll need to pick up more items. I still have lots of space to fill!

Have a restful weekend!
