We had so much fun dressing up as "Little Red Riding Hood" this year! Miss Lu was a big hit as the "Granny" with her missing teeth :) And we even won a prize for the best costume theme—even Calvin Jesse was excited about that one! (Ok, he was mostly excited that people were clapping for him, but still, it was really cute.)
(I totally made this cute little bunting to decorate our car!)
This year, Miss Lucy walks home from school. It gives her a chance to decompress a bit, and get a little extra energy out before she gets home and has to start her routine of homework and practicing. While there's a whole herd of kids that walk home, most of them live a bit closer to the school; luckily, she's found some friends who have to walk almost as far as she does. Every day she comes home and fills me in on their latest adventures: there's been princesses fighting an evil wizard, robot aliens, and some sort of "freeze" game that I have yet to fully understand, among others. I love that she has such good friends, and that they're all so imaginative!
