All of the pumpkin videos got me in the right mindset for Halloween. Carter started the day in a jack-o-lantern onesie which he'd already soiled by lunchtime when I went to visit him. He ended up with 2 clothing changes at daycare today. So glad I didn't dress him in his costume! A new little 6 week old was wearing her ladybug costume today and looked precious!
In true Halloween style during our writing time today a student came up to my table where I was working with a group of students to inform me that there was a scorpion walking around by where he was working. I assured him it must just look like a scorpion, but as I approached the animal I recognized the curled up tail immediately. I couldn't believe there was actually a scorpion in our classroom. I had the students closest to it move a little bit away "so they didn't scare the scorpion and get hurt". I caught it in a cup, talk about heart pounding, and released it outside.

When I picked Carter up from daycare after school I was greeted with an art project he had created during the day. They also gave me an art project he created earlier in the week by rolling a marble around. His teacher said that was his favorite one. Little man loves things that roll, especially wheels!

We went for a run and then headed home to get ready for trick or treating. I showered while Carter played in his jumperoo and then it was time to get him in his Robin costume. He looked so cute and kept reaching back to grab his cape.
I wanted to take pictures before we headed out, but Carter just wasn't having it. After this weekend whenever he's with me he wants me to hold him constantly and kept crying when I sat him down. Finally I wised up, brought Harper in, had her run around in front of Carter, and he stopped crying. Thank goodness for Harper, I finally got some pictures!
