One of our friends has started a playgroup for homeschooling families in our area. We had our first get together Thursday, where we took a nature walk, played at the park, and then decorated cookies for Halloween. It was fun for Miss M to meet other kids her age who are being homeschooled for Preschool/Kindergarten as well, and she is looking forward to future outings (we have a boat float day coming up soon she is particularly excited about!)
This weekend was also our neighborhood's annual block party. We have a party every year before Halloween when we close down the street for one evening and have food, a bounce house, face painters and balloon artists, train rides, fire trucks, and all the kids wear their costumes. It is a lot of fun and my kids look forward to it every year.
We hosted the bounce house this year, so the kids got to try it out by themselves first. (This is not Miss M's halloween costume, Grandma is still hard at work sewing for this year.)
The boys both enjoyed the fire truck...
It was a busy, busy weekend, but one the kids thoroughly enjoyed.
