Trying on costumes. She ended up with the Pirate Girl.
Ready for Trunk-or-Treat at church.
Notice the Pirate’s natural ability to ignore her father…
Game. Candy. Repeat.
Trunk-or-Treat is awesome.
I spook-ified our Cariboo game with some Halloween vocabulary cards for a simple at home Speech Therapy session for Olivia. She loved it.
I’ve already made sets for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The girls and Isaac earned a lot of moola raking leaves this week.
Elaina loves telling jokes. I’ve made a couple sets like this one for her.
Olivia worked through most of her “S” letter-of-the-week stuff.
Spiders, Snakes, and Eye Spy were her favorite.
Elaina measured Bats, Ghosts, and Spiders, and played several dice games too.
The girls were asking for painting projects so we tried a glue-resist watercolor.
I tinted the glue with black tempera paint and let it dry overnight.
Then they painted the rest the next day.
Elaina wrote a non-scary story. She worked really hard on it all week long.
This was her first really big writing project and she did very well.
Isaac and Nate didn’t have school Thursday or Friday, so Isaac joined us for another painting project, Halloween Silhouettes.
They learned how to blend an ombre blue and then designed a cityscape to cut out of black paper.
Olivia requested non-stop coloring pages.
Isaac drew and colored a few too.
The skeleton puzzle always comes out this time of year.
Olivia was fascinated with measuring herself against it.
Ready for Trick-or-Treating.
I may or may not have tried to steal a few Reese’s….
