What October is half over???

WOW! How can it be possible that we are already 1/2 way thru October? The kids have already completed their 1st month of school. Halloween is just around the corner. On Friday night our school PTO put the 2nd annual Fall Festival. It was so much fun. The kids got to dress up in their costumes. There was a "pumpkin patch" in front of the school so the kids got to grab pumpkins and then decorate them with all kinds of goodies. It was a lot of fun. This picture is of the girls and I at the event. I am on PTO so I was dressed up as well snapping pictures of the events. I love an occasion when I can pull out my poodle skirt and saddle shoes!

School is going great for the kids! They all have amazing teachers and they are learning sooo much already. We look forward to all that they will be experiencing with school as the year goes on!

The girls are also really enjoying irish dance still. Meg started learning hard shoe steps last month and she is in absolute heaven! It has really re-energized her dancing learning something so new! She even has a special dance workspace in the basement that has mirrors and hardwood flooring to practice on. She is going to be doing the Pat Roche Feis this weekend in Chicago. This was the 1st feis she did just 1 year ago. It is amazing to see how she has improved since then. We are so happy to see her so excited to be dancing and wanting to practice every minute she can.

Jack is knee deep in cub scouts stuff! He is working on badges and special belt loops. It is fun to see his passion for this. I am so glad we encouraged him to join cub scouts! And Chad is now the Den Master (I am sure the name is different and he will correct me on this). It is fun to see them work on all of the activities together. Good father son time together. :)

Hope all of our friends and families are enjoying the fall. Before we know it there will be snow on the ground..... :)
