…and so it begins

Today was Baby Monkey’s Halloween parade for his M,T,W nursery school class.

His nursery school/daycare is housed in a local church, and the kids usually go outside and walk around the building twice and all the parents stand out there and watch and take pictures.

However, in a Halloween first for us, it was raining today. In eight years, we’ve never had a Halloween parade rained out. I guess we should consider ourselves lucky!

So, instead of parading outside, the kids paraded around the aisles in the sanctuary.

Baby Monkey had the time of his life.

He caught sight of us during the first lap and knew right where we’d be on the second time around. He beamed and proudly wore his brother’s old Superman costume.

After parading, the kid went up on the altar and sang some Halloween songs.

Baby Monkey decided not to sing, but to just smile at me the whole time.

Seriously…he didn’t even look where all the other kids were looking. We caught eyes and just smiled at each other for about five minutes. I was in heaven.

Then, it was time to go back to class and so he waved and went off to his Halloween party and Real Man and I went back to work. One down, three to go.

Halloween. Gotta love it.

Rainy Day vs. Sunny Day

In my house, as in every house, the activities are dependent upon the weather.

On sunny days, I know the monkeys will be riding bikes, at the park, in the stream, on the deck, doing whatever.

On a rainy day, I never know what they’ll come up with.

Sunny day.


Rainy day.


Hard to know which one to hope for. Both are awesome.
