October Break

I love a break from school.  A day to just hang out in our pajamas, play, read, and make special treats.  Today is one of those days.

Two of the children woke up wanting to have a Halloween celebration. They gathered everyone to dress in old costumes, then decorate bags, the older children helping the little ones.  They went around to the bedrooms collecting little toys and treats.  Some music was turned on, and they had a little dance party.  Finally, we made some Rice Krispie Treats with black bat sprinkles.
