Life on Halloween (and for a few days before)

November 2, 2010

A day of first’s and last’s.  DB4’s first time trick-or-treating (I don’t send babies out to get candy for me) & DB1’s last time.  I know, last year should have been his last time, but he’s in 7th grade so I let it slide.  Next year he gets to stay home with DB5 & me and hand out candy to kids (while I hand out raisins to big kids & adults).

Life on All Saints Day (or Thereabout)

October 23, 2010

We’re not Catholic, but when a friend at ballet invited us to her Catholic homeschool group’s All Saints Day picnic I was happy to go.  As I shared on FB, just to be able to go some place new & meet new people without being innundated with rude comments about the size of our family was extremely appealing.

On Thursday we did a mini-study on All Saints Day since, of course, the kids know nothing about it.  That night I was talking to some people at ballet about the party & one of the women brought us a box of costumes since, of course, we have none.  I used the costume pieces that I thought could be washed in a machine, cuz with my luck…lol. 

DB2 used the borrowed costume.  DB3 used part of a costume for his shoulder wrap.  It was supposed to be on his head, but I forgot that piece of twine.  I bought a large white t-shirt for DB3’s costume.  Twine for the belts on both.  DB4 is wearing a shirt of his dad’s, inside out, sans twine, cuz I forgot that piece too.
