Pumpkin painting day

I’m pretending today is Thursday. It’s overwhelming to try to catch up on the past three days all in one post, so I’m just doing one back-blog at a time.

Good thing I have pictures to remind me what happened on Thursday! We had a good schooling morning, and we ended by studying maple trees and doing a maple leaf craft.

Story time.

The girls are showing off their painted nails. Ethelene, our neighbor, painted them. The maple leaf craft consisted of cutting maple leaves off a garland I picked up at Michael's. We then hot glued the leaves to some jars. I dropped a little color changing candle in each jar, and the girls were wowed.

Our neighbor set up a pumpkin painting station for the neighborhood kids in the afternoon.

In the evening Shauna, Abe’s cousin, arrived. She is a photographer and came to Utah to do some shots for some of her clients here. I stayed up talking with Shauna until past midnight. She is so creative and wise, and I learned so much from her. I wish she lived in Utah!
