I was beaming with pride as my precious angel sang these songs to our veterans!
He did look at me some throughout the performance, but not near as often as I thought he would!
All of these fantastic students (27 of which were mine in kindergarten) did a wonderful job in this performance. I couldn't have been more proud, especially of my little singer. At the end of the performance, Drew was adamant about shaking the hands of the veterans that were there and thanking them for their sacrifice. What a sweetie!!

Drew and Bryson ride the "hayride" after "trunk-or-treating" a little bit.
Drew comes down the slide on one of the inflatables. This is the same inflatable that Drew scared me to death in right before we left...story to come later.
Emily, Mikayla, and Breanna ride the "hayride" with my friend Loretta. We all love "Retta" - she is a mess!
Then we headed across the street to Grandma's house so Drew and Mikayla could trick-or-treat there. This is actually their Great-Grandma (my dad's mom) and they love going over to Grandma's house anytime!
Boy, we sure have been busy, but I wouldn't trade it for the world! Did I mention I love this time of year, and all of the fun things I get to do with my angels??

Our school had our Award's Day on Wednesday, October 29th. We did things a little differently at our school this year. One of the differences is that kindergarten has never participated in Award's Day and this year we did. Another difference is that all of the Award's Ceremonies were held in each teachers' individual classrooms. Drew's ceremony was at 9:30 and then Mikayla's was at 12:00. My classroom's ceremony was also held at 12:00, but Mikayla's teacher, my assistant, and I worked it out so that I could be there to see Mikayla get her awards! I am soooo proud of both of my angels and all of their hard work!! I hope that they both always do this well in school - they are very capable, that's for sure!!
All smiles back at his seat!!
Drew's shows off all of his awards!! Keep up the great work, my sweet boy!!
Mikayla accepts her award for "Miss Manners" from her teacher! That's my girl - manners are very important to mommy!!
Mikayla walks back to her seat after accepting her award for Perfect Attendance!
Mikayla and her friends recite a poem that they had been learning in class for the parents! I love the look she is giving me here! She couldn't stop smiling - from the time I walked into the class until the time I left to go back to mine!Mikayla shows off the awards that she earned! Keep up the great work, my sweet girl!!
Mikayla waits for the "Parade of Teams" to start!
Drew participating in the "scariest costume" contest.
My dad surprised us by showing up after we had been there about an hour. Drew and Mikayla sure were happy to see their Poppi! Mikayla even wore Poppi's hat for awhile so she did the only natural thing - she let him wear hers!
AYSO had vendors there and also inflatables. A local martial arts school came to put on a demonstration for the players and families. There was even a soccer game between the coaches and the referees from this season! Drew and Mikayla wanted to play on the equipment at the park more than anything. They especially loved Poppi pushing them on the swings!! Drew played in the last regular game of the season this past Saturday, and the game ended in a tie. He does, however, have the chance to play in a soccer tournament this coming weekend. We can't wait to watch the outcome of that!!
