Pumpkin Patch

Samantha took a walking field trip to the pumpkin patch down the street from her school. I volunteered to go along as a chaperone and I wanted Matt to go too. I think I ended up chaperoning only him because he was being terrible. I don't blame him though it was like 90 degrees and super humid. It was pretty miserable. Despite the heat, I think the kids had fun.

Choosing a pumpkin. He wanted one as big as him, but we ended up with a tiny one.

My favorite. 100% Matt

Sammy made the girl next to her scoot over so brother could fit.

Ms. Craven's kindergarten class

She's so sweet.

The girl on the left is her friend, Caroline. They talk...a lot!

Baking Cookies

What happens when you take a Samantha to the grocery store? She picks out a box of cookies and a can of frosting. I am making a conscious effort to eat better and this did not help. She had a great time making them, so that's all that matters.

Pumpkin Carving Time!

The pestering by brother never stops.

I love the pumpkin guts. Too bad i burnt all of the seeds when I roasted them :(

Sammy mortified by pumpkin guts.

We (Sam) carved the pumpkin about 2 weeks ago, but he's already moldy. Good 'ol San Antonio, the place where everything gets moldy. I might do another one with the kids before Halloween, but it probably won't turn out as good as Sam's.

Picture Day and Parent Teacher Conference

Here is the official Kindergarten school picture. I was so thrilled that she had a genuine smile :) Sammy usually gives us a super cheesy grin or a constipated close-lip smile. I am very proud of this picture.

I also had parent teacher conference last Friday. Everything went great and her teacher said she is doing awesome! She is the second youngest in her class, but she's right on track and a little ahead. Her teacher called her a "teacher pleaser." I certainly hope that's a good thing? She hasn't had any discipline problems. I wish I could say the same thing for the way she acts at home.

Potty Time

Woo Hoo!! Matt went pee in the potty today (on his own accord). Sam took his diaper off this morning and sat the potty next to him while he was watching cartoons. All of a sudden I hear Sam scream, "You did it!!! You did it!!" I was in my room getting ready and I had no idea what was going on and I ran out and discovered that he peed in the potty!!! He has yet to do it again today, but we haven't really been pushing the issue. I don't want to scare him away from the toilet.
