Emerson's class has 2 big things going on all year. Each week, a different kid is designated "the child of the week", and last week was Em's turn. Families are encouraged to bring in photos for the bulletin board, and the kiddos fill out a little info sheet to share tidbits about themselves with the class. They can bring in their favorite book & toy to share, and parents are invited to come in to read to the class. Keith got to go on Wednesday to read Harold & the Purple Crayon, which Em specifically requested. She took her My Little Pony in on Friday to share. We snapped a few photos of the bulletin board while we attended the class Halloween party on Monday. Em realllllllly enjoyed being the center of attention all week, and pointed out to us that she got to sit in the chair of honor, right next to the teacher's rocking chair all week long.

We tried a new place this year for pumpkins, and it had a corn maze. Em had fun leading us through by following the alphabet, tied in various spots in the maze to stalks of corn. There were a few farm animals for petting/feeding, a hayride and lots of photo ops. Em picked a pumpkin, and then she & Dad did the carving honors this year. Em wanted nuttin' to do with pumpkin guts.
