Braces off!

Mary has something extra to be thankful for this Thanksgiving: no more braces! She celebrated by eating Laffy Taffy, and biting into a whole (not sliced) apple. How was the apple? "Satisfying."

Zome bubble fun

Every time Mary finishes a unit in math, she gets a change of pace. Today it was making bubbles with Zome tools.

Mary did most of the building, and Audrey did most of the dipping.

The spiral was hard to figure out from the illustration in the book. I helped out with that one.

Here it is, the amazing bubble square.


All dressed up for the neighborhood party:

Audrey was the first one to bob for apples.

Stephen came over to go trick-or-treating on the hayride around our neighborhood.

Lucy decided to try her hand, I mean her teeth, at carving a pumpkin.
