It's October 8th, so you know we've been donning our Halloween garb since October 1st:
(Sometimes Bubby dons nothing.)
In case you didn't know, yesterday was International Walk to School Day:
I'm not kidding when I tell you everyone in the school walked. Notices were sent out far in advance, encouraging everyone to walk, even if that meant driving in, but parking further out than usual and walking the last few hundred yards up to the school. There were balloons and and pencils and stickers at the entrance, celebrating the "holiday." It was quite a production. Did anyone else experience this?
After walking to school, Sydney went on a field trip to the Kennedy Center. She saw this production:Changing Education Through the Arts -- CETA -- program. So they will go to the Kennedy Center a few more times throughout the year. There are only a few schools in the country part of this program, so they are lucky ducks.)
