Photos - Halloween Week

We have had a busy week since returning from Pennsylvania...

Big Bro and Little Bro have done some neat Halloween / fall work:
Making candy ghosts, pounding nails into pumpkins, making Pumpkin Life Cycle books, creating fall themed poetry books, pumpkin carving and painting, making ghost PR & J sandwiches, lining up small pumpkins and gourds by size and then by weight, patterning activities and addition activities with Halloween themed mini erasers, creating Play Doh cut outs with Halloween themed cookie cutters, counting and sorting silk fall colored leaves, designing mosaic frames to go around our Halloween pictures, doing spider math, sorting, patterning, graphing, and weighing different types of candy, creating Halloween puppets, and coming up with a story for our Halloween village. Big Bro had such a good time working with the ceramic Halloween village that he decided to do an extension of this work by building his own block version of his Halloween village.

In addition to our work, we had a few visits to the doctor's office, as Mommy has been a bit sick since we have returned. Not the flu, just a sinus, eye, and double ear infection. Not fun being sick with trying to get caught up on homeschooling, laundry, and just day to day stuff though...

The boys have been troopers and so has Dear Hubby.

He has pitched in by making meals, and helping with reviewing the boys's work when he has gotten home from work.
Luckily, thanks to antibiotics, I am starting to feel better.

We actually went to Sea World last night, thinking that we were going to see some of the "Halloween Spooktacular" show they have been advertising, but what we didn't know was that the show is held on weekends only for the month of October. It ended up being a nice time, though, as there were hardly any visitors to the park so it was very easy to get from place to place. We just took a nice stroll around the park and only stopped at a couple of exhibits. The boys loved playing in the water park area while I got to relax and sit and just watch them playing.
As crazy as it may seem to some of you, going to Sea World is incredibly relaxing when you go off season. Seeing the animals and looking at the beautiful landscaping is a very peaceful experience.
A few times this year when life has been particularly busy, we have taken a break from our routines and have gone there just to hang out. Seeing belugas, manatees, dolphins, penguins, sharks, and killer whales is a great way to take your mind off of the daily grind.

We've been doing mostly Halloween/Fall stuff this week as well. A was at grandma's for a week and with everything, school has been pretty light around these parts!

Lots of life least that's what I'm telling myself!
