Halloween night was stormy and windy and not fit for goblin or monster. So we stayed snuggled in watching scary movies and Charlie Brown’s Great Pumpkin. Nomad was dressed up as a honey bee. This was Keilee’s costume from her very first play when she was 5!
Thankfully Keilee got to wear her Halloween costume several times! She was asked by Everyday Sunshine; which is a non profit organization that is producing a TV show to broadcast at Children’s Hospitals throughout the country; to face paint at their Halloween Hoot. She had a blast and the kids loved her! She just adores little kids.
Then we went to the Renaissance Faire Sunday. This is always our favorite fair. I have been taking Keilee since she was 4!! See the Ferret? She was in love.
These are some of the pictures Keilee took. Her 2 favorite subjects, animals and kids.
We stopped by a cotton field on the way home from the Ren Faire. We always take Cotton Field pictures.
Working on a Mushroom page from “Handbook of Nature Study”. I think this is a book we have used most of all the last 7 years. Fall beauty. Keilee at Gymnastics doing a back kickover.
Saturday night the Old State Bank was having a haunted ghost tour. Not with people who jump out and such but the Alabama Paranormal Society was there doing readings of all sorts. Keilee loves, didimentionLOVES, all things ghosty. My Momma did too. So she was beyond excited. It was very informative, lots of history and such. She got to use dousing rods and the EMP detectors and more. They had 8 stations set up. One was in the old vault. This was used as a surgery room during The Civil War. They closed us in and turned off the lights and did recordings with us asking questions. We also saw many orbs in some of the video equipment.
We didn’t have Co-op this week so we spent hours reading and doing Algebra, History, Biology, Nature and more. I bought an Edgar Allen Poe course from Connect the Thoughts on Currclick. This is a 25-30 hour course and I thought Halloween was the perfect week to begin. Keilee has always loved Edgar Allen Poe.
The leaves are finally beginning to get beautiful so I took some of my annual “Keilee in the Leaves” pictures. They haven’t fallen so much and when they do that is another ‘photo shoot’.
And finally my favorite picture of the week. I always love the pictures of Keilee laughing or acting silly the most!
Happy 1st weekend of November!
