(I'm writing this on November 8. It is a recap of the week of October 26 - November 1.)
I texted A LOT. Thank the stars I had that to do otherwise I would have been going insane. The cats helped keep me grounded. Mr. Biscuit helped and hindered around my desk.
More Halloween Fun - we had our usual weekly park play time on the Sunday before Halloween. There were costumes and masks and a pinata and cookies.
Tom very kindly sent Harper a Halloween gift:
But for the Friday before Halloween, Harper did revert to the Hermione Costume.
Cute turkey puzzle thing!
The last three Halloween things we did were on actual Halloween. First we went to the mini Halloween drive through (mentioned at the end of this blog post) then we made Spooky Hot Dogs! They are supposed to look like mummies...but uh, oh well.
Lastly, we told Harper she could trick or treat in the house (between Kurt's office and my office) if she changed into various costumes. She kind of did!
First up: Hermione:
Then she and we were DONE with Halloween. I think we had more Halloween this year than any year previously!
There had been a bit more art from Harper this week. Starting with a thank to Tom for the above Halloween Lego gift.
I love getting these notes when I'm busy or on the phone. I love that she draws her own life (zoom class).
A thank you note to Grace for a little Halloween fun.
And then a zombie! Just for fun.
She also started a new art class after school on Fridays. Clay modeling. Super cute!
Crazy busy as I was with texting toward the end of the week, I did enjoy making breakfast for Harper one morning.
This is how I was feeling over the weekend whilst texting and leading/moderating in the group. It was very stressful and exhausting. I estimated I worked 6-8 hour days then it ramped up to 12 hour days over the last weekend. At this point I was still very very very nervous and filled with dread.
Thankfully, we know the outcome...!!!
