We have been enjoying a full week of Halloween activities, starting with a homeschool group field trip to a farm on Tuesday.
The hay ride:
The educational portion of the trip:
As soon as we got home, Blaze carved our pumpkin. This was the first time that my very cautious child has been willing to cut a pumpkin all by himself. He still thinks cleaning the pumpkin is discusting, though.
That same evening, we went to "Freeze and Fright" at the Mag Lab:
Wednesday, we stayed home, watched "Corpse Bribe", and baked cookies for Thursday's Halloween party.
Thursday morning began with festive cheese grits:
Then, we went to the homeschool group's Halloween party at the park.
Blaze and I set up a booth for "Freeze Dance" to Halloween songs.
Friday, Blaze and I went to Cascades Park for Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra's Halloween Symphony Spooktacular Family Concert.
Yesterday was all about Halloween food, even when we went to a lecture about the history of Halloween at the Challenger Learning Center.
Tonight's festive food is octopus-shaped sausage rolls.
