Kisnley’s reading app has recipes and she found some she wanted to make for Halloween! Earwax on a stick. They actually tasted pretty good.

I didn’t want to miss out on our annual pumpkin patching so we got tickets (which are never needed in non-Covid times) and drove up to Half Moon Bay!

As much as I don’t want to admit it, I think this was our last time to Lemos. The kids are just too old. Kinsley still had fun and Cason a tiny bit but it’s time to find a patch geared to more older kids.

We stopped at another patch that the kids can do some hay jumping and met some friends there.

Corbin’s school decided they could not safely take yearbook photos so they asked us to do it on our own and to add a Zoom background. Here’s the before and after of what Corbin chose!

There has been a lot of election talk in our house. Cason was learning about the electoral college from his scholastic news so Connor was explaining it a little more to him.

Since our school can’t have their annual Walkathon it was done virtually (for 10 days). This was the first day!
