Happy Halloween

Halloween is the best! I love that the teachers at my school get dressed up every year! Jackie always has the best ideas. Our signs this year are compliments of her artistry... isn't she amazing? Hope everyone had as great a day as I did and you all have a spooky night ;)
Happy Halloween!

Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs.

A closer look at Sam the pea pod who joined our staff photo.

The pea pod with his family. He's just too adorable!!

This October has been crazy with travel for us... But I couldn't let my favorite season go by without one picture of the colors! Here is a shot out of my classroom window early one morning. I feel blessed to live in a state that does fall in style. (And has a team that can sweep the World Series! Way to go SOX!)

Playing with Blocks

While men may appear to grow up, Columbus weekend shows that they are all still little boys inside!

Eric builds an elaborate block tower.

Matty "helps".

Matt decides to join in the fun.

And the best part of building with blocks...demolition.

Columbus Gathering

Wow... time keeps moving swiftly past. It's fall and I've taught over 25 days of school already! I have a fabulous class this year and life is pretty great. (Although still no word on a start date for construction...) The following are pics from the annual Columbus Day event. (Held this year in VA at Matt & Lauren's new and very lovely home.) Good times!

The whole gang: Eric, Me, Matty, Lauren, Matt, Rob.

Little Matty is too cute not to post!
