We did Zoo Boo and the pumpkin patch a couple of weeks ago, painted pumpkins and have some "smooky" Jack-o-Lanterns and headstones in our front yard.
Today was Halloween at Georgia's new school, and she went as the Queen of Hearts.
Speaking of her new school - WOW! This was only her second day (she goes Tuesdays and Thursdays) and there is a night & day difference. She is so excited now, wants to tell me every little thing that happened. Her teacher is a Godsend. She is definitely along the lines of the type of teacher we are used to, and I'm thankful for that.
Georgia is fitting right in. Ever since Tuesday all I've heard is "Catorina this, Catorina that" because she and Catorina carved a pumpkin together. Mrs. D. said yesterday the half of the class that attends five days a week kept asking where she was. That makes me so happy!
It was nice to get to know some of the parents and grandparents at the party today. Georgia sits by a little girl who lives in the next neighborhood over and is also an only child, so maybe we will have her over to play.
Another very minor thing, but comforting nonetheless, is that the one reason I didn't want to leave our old school is because a lot of my friends' kids go there. So every drop off and pick up was a tiny social time for both of us. I ran into several moms that I know today! It's nice to know that if I ever need an emergency pickup or something, I have people I can call on.
I hope it doesn't rain this weekend....we have another stellar costume to show off!
