Halloween 2010

Leading up to Halloween, I swore that I would never make the kids costumes again. That from now on we would be at Party City buying something off the rack. But when Halloween night came and the kids looked so awesome in their costumes, my resolve started weakening. I went to bed thinking: That Coraline costume Morgan was talking about wouldn't be too hard to make. And: If I start early enough we could probably put together a cat costume for Zachary. Next fall, PLEASE REMIND ME that I don't want to do this again. :-)

Here is Jedi Morgan (or [M]Obi-Wan Kenobi):

Zachary wanted to be a robot so Jon designed and built the very coolest robot costume EVER for him. And when Zachary saw it he.....decided he didn't want to be a robot anymore. Of course. Luckily he changed his mind at the last minute and looked pretty great!

New School Year

This August, Morgan started first grade. She has a great class and a great teacher who she loves! This group will be together through second grade so its a good thing she likes everyone. She is doing fantastic in school and is learning so many new things. Her reading is really taking off, but her favorite subject is math.
Zachary started Pre-Kindergarten this fall as well. We were a little apprehensive because we found out just before school started that he wouldn't have the teacher we thought he would. But as soon as Zachary saw the new teacher he said "Mom! I think her is a princess!" So he's fine with the change. :-) He is also learning a lot and making tons of friends.
