Fall Fun Update

An update on our fall to-do list.  We're doing pretty well, but there will be several things we don't do. 

Done

  7. Pull out quilts and blankets
  8. Nature Mandalas:  a first this year; so pretty.
  9. Church in-gathering celebration:  we took water from our rain gauge, excited that it had finally rained
  10. Make faerie houses:  our first ones circled the silver maple
  11. Comic Con:  always fun, like a big geeky Halloween party
  12. Matilda:  excellent!
  13. Spring Awakening (adults only):  a fantastic evening of ASL and musical theater, in a story about drastic consequences resulting from miscommunicaitons between horny German teenagers and their parents
  14. School Open House:  another year has started!
  15. Prepare Halloween costumes:  We have Black Widow and Link all ready to go
