Coco the bunny...

Scarlett's class has a stuffed bunny named Coco and every child gets a chance to take Coco home for a long weekend.  Coco was an honorary five day family member and literally went everywhere that we did.  I was so stressed about Coco getting left behind and being "that mom" that I spent the whole weekend asking more about the whereabouts of Coco than I was about my own children. Thankfully we made it to Wednesday with Coco and my sanity in tact and we were able to present Coco back to the class with many happy memories.

Pumpkin patch perfection...

About 2 miles (as the crow flies) and 10 minutes from our home is wide open farm land.  Rows and rows of pumpkins light up the landscape with their perfected fall orange.

We went to a local farm in Snohomish right on the river, but if we hadn't chosen that one, there were easily 20 more along the way.  There was fall food, farm grown pumpkins and decorative squash just snipped from the vine, hay mazes, an inflatable blob for jumping, slides, swings, and perfect fall weather.

School picture...

How are we already at the school picture stage?  And you have no idea how relieved I was when I saw that perfect smile, especially since our trial runs were a little less than desirable.
