Edible Pumpkin Playdough

A pinterest fail. The main ingredient was powdered sugar. The boys said it tasted yummy but it was not very playdough like.

Nolan's Conferences

As you see he's mastered what they're teaching. 
This is one graph of one of his IEP goals and all of them look like this. He mastered these goals in before the end of last year. I'm really curious as to what they are going to recommend for next year at his meeting in March. I was really surprised that he even qualified for development preschool at his last meeting.

Painted Nails

I recently got to go out and get a pedicure. It's been a really long time. Nolan liked them so much he wanted to get his nails done too. Instead of using liquid polish, I pulled out some of my old stick on polish.

Lunch with our Kindergartener

We even got to see some of his artwork in the hall.

 I received some feed back from my post about parent/teacher conferences and what I learned is I need to parent better instead of shelter my child. Thank you readers for your comments I really appreciate the constructive criticism and advice.

Day 1 of Fall Break; Smashing Pumpkins

Our street got hit by some kids smashing pumpkins at 1am. I thought I hear car doors way to close to the house so I got up and looked out the window to see this. I think it is actually our neighbors pumpkin because three of their 6 got smashed and we still have 10. 
I decided to do some experiments with our smashed pumpkin. First we took some seeds and put them in a napkin, in a bag with water. Not we are tracking them to see how long it takes for them to sprout. 

Next up was a pinterest idea. Using cookie cutters and a mallet. 

We discovered it is much easier to do it from the inside of the pumpkin.

October Date Night

The Children's Museum has a haunted house with lights on hours, scary hours, and xtreme hours. David is ok with going to the scary hours, but not up for the xtreme hours. Maybe he'll forget how scared he was and try out the xtreme hours next year.
