Today, Liesl's and Therese's preschool hosted a Thanksgiving Feast. First, the students put on a little show for us. I'm sorry the pictures turned out badly. I just couldn't get the camera to focus properly for some reason. Anyway, after the show, all the families and students ate a potluck Thanksgiving feast. The food was good. We enjoyed ourselves.

On Monday night was Colum's pack meeting. He earned a few more activity pins, the Compass Points emblem, and a red vest. Colum will not be able to earn his Arrow of Light award until Dad can get back and take him on a Webelos overnighter, or until he can go on a day hike. Hopefully that will happen in the Spring. Colum is also working on his religious emblem. The only two things he has left to do is to visit with the sick/elderly/homebound and to make a banner. So close!
Last night was Parent Night at the Golden Slippers, so the parents were allowed into the rooms to view their children taking dance class. Normally, the parents have to wait out in the waiting area while the children take their classes. This was a good opportunity to take some pictures. Liesl and Therese are obviously learning something in class. They seem to enjoy it.

Yesterday, we went to another farm for a field trip, this time with Liesl's and Therese's preschool. The kids went on another hayride and picked a pumpkin from the pumpkin 'patch'. It wasn't really a pumpkin patch. Just a bunch of pumpkins on the floor with hay strewn about. I definitely enjoyed Brookdale Farm better because it wasn't commercialized and definitely more 'real'. Hunt Club Farm was WAY overcrowded. There were a lot of school buses in the overflow parking lot, as you can see in one of the pictures! We had to wait in a looooong line as if we were at Disneyland to go on the hayride. The kids did not have a great time there and I can tell because they asked to leave to have lunch. They never ask to leave or even to eat if they're having a lot of fun. Here are pictures of the moments where we had fun at Hunt Club Farm.
The kids and I went over to a family friend's house for a sleepover. Our husbands were away so it was a good time to do a sleepover. All the kids played and celebrated Halloween together. The girls (5 of them) shared a room. We finally told them to go to bed about 2230, but it wasn't until about midnight that ALL of them were sound asleep! I could not resist taking these pictures because of Therese. Just look at her face!!
