Class Helper!

This past week I got to be the class helper in Scott's class... in gr. 1 it means that you get to do teacher jobs, not so much play with the kids and do the same activities as them. But I got to practice sight words with a bunch of different kids individually, and then I got to do some stapling for the teacher and then some other little jobs. It was great to see Scott interact with his friends in class, and also put up his hand a lot to answer questions.

Lovely Lattice

Many years ago... even before I was a Demo... I learned this lattice technique and have kind of forgotten about it. I came across the instructions for it the other day, and thought it would make a great club project.

The stamp set we used was "Thoughts and Prayers" and we used Heat and Stick powder and glitter on the words. It looks hard to read here, but in real life it is better!

Here is the pattern and instructions... if you print this out on 8 1/2 X 11 then you will get the right size for your template. (There is not a name on this sheet, so I don't even know who to credit this technique to, but it is a great one... and easy to do, too!)

For as long as we have had kids, we have gone to just a few houses on Halloween. We don't go to strangers' houses, we just go to a few of our friends, and people that we maybe haven't seen since last Halloween (or longer), and we want to have a quick catch up. For instance, we went to our old next door neighbours', who haven't seen the kids for at least 2 years. And we went to our old Realtor's house (who became the owner of our old cat when we moved off our old farm) so we could say hi, and the kids could see their old kitty!!

Number of houses visited: 10
Amount of "loot": half a bag per child
Kilometres put on the truck: At least 50
The looks on the kids faces as people said how cute they were in
their costumes and gave them handfuls of candy.....

Our old cat... The kids love to see how she is doing!

Somebody else's cat.... hmm... I think my kids like cats!

A very happy Dinosaur!
