Rushton’s Dia de los Muertos altar honoring Pop (Great Grandpa Ray Spurlock) included a Twinkie, a beautiful mini quilt (made by @h2spurlock) with a photo of Pop and some of his illustrations, a candle, a sugar skull decorated in class last week, papel picado, a skeleton, and a skull cookie. They had a fiesta during lunch with an assortment of Mexican food, including carnitas tacos (made by me, and they were sooooo delicious, if I do say so myself!). I loved hearing the stories the students told of their loved ones who have passed. Rushton is such a good kid, and I’m grateful that I get to spy on him in class every once in a while. And that he’ll still give me a hug in front of his friends.

Fall Fest at school is one of our favorite nights of the year! The big kids especially love the freedom of running around all night playing carnival games and eating candy with their friends, and I love seeing so many families and friends from the community while working at the ticket booth. (Mad props to my friend @bridgetpeters76 for putting on another great event! Rush requested that we have Fall Fest every month. Think you can make that happen?)

Preschool Halloween festival with Logan’s MWF crew! Too bad he was such an angry ninja turtle. 🙄 The cute little tiger is his preschool BFF, and the teacher says that they have almost the exact same personality split into two little bodies. Which means that she probably alternates between wanting to squeeze them with hugs or stomp away with her hands thrown up in the air.

Storybook character pumpkins! This is the first year we’ve participated in the contest at school because there are just SO. MANY. THINGS. going on in the week leading up to Halloween. Hailey did Trixie the Halloween Fairy from the Rainbow Magic fairy books and Rushton did Greg from the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. Such a fun project!
