Happy Halloween

We have been enjoying a full week of Halloween activities, starting with a homeschool group field trip to a farm on Tuesday.

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:

Yesterday was all about Halloween food, even when we went to a lecture about the history of Halloween at the Challenger Learning Center.
