We spent this past weekend nursing colds. Poor Rowan had a fever on Saturday, and slept the day away. It really bugs me that parents send their kiddos to school when they are contagious. I know that some parents don't have other alternatives, and I feel for them. But I keep my littles at home when I know they can pass their bug along. Sorry, rant over. It's just hard to see your little struggle with being ill when there are so many fun Fall activities to be doing!
Luckily we were able to fit in a fun Fall activity at our friend's the weekend before at their pumpkin carving party! Dan and Lacy bravely invited a few families with lots of kiddos over to wield knives over pumpkins. Fletcher was really into it, and he and Brian got one carved up, with his direction of "triangle eyes, rhombus nose, and Spongebob's teeth." The boy is specific, I'll give him that! Rowan just wanted to draw her face on with a sharpie and call it a day. We spent the rest of the party eating delicious chili and sipping hot cider around a fire. It was the perfect pumpkin carving party!
