What I Should Be for Halloween

You Should Be a Werewolf
You are seen as a bit tough and quite unpredictable. You follow your impulses.
You see Halloween as a time you can go a little crazy.

You love to scare people, and people are quite scared of you.
You tend to be intimidating - and not just on Halloween!

Autumn Changes

At the schools right now we're doing a Unit on a book called The Apple Pie Tree. It's got a nice little theme to it, talking about how it changes from winter, spring, summer, and fall. I've enjoyed it so much, that I'm going to use it as a language unit for a project I'm doing at school. Learning the changes of seasons is actually part of Utah's curriculum requirements. Kindergarten students are supposed to learn what happens in the outdoors when seasons change, and how people change in response to seasonal changes. It's really interesting to review the grade level curriculum requirements and to realize what it was the teachers were actually trying to teach us. I loved Kindergarten! I had absolutely no idea that my teacher was teaching me. We were learning in a way that had us explore the environment around us. How great it is to be a kid and get to learn about 'seasonal changes'!

Leaves change color in the fall, the earth is covered in snow in the winter, blossoms flourish in the springtime, and the grass grows long and green during the summer. I decided to enjoy a seasonal change myself:

'Tis the Season for Pumpkins

For FHE we ate pizza and carved pumpkins! O what fun! I made the spider and my favorite Jack-O-Lantern was Mr. Frank N. Stein.

The sad part is that we carved them so early on in October that they probably won't last until Halloween...but I'm sure going to enjoy it while it lasts!

I found the templates on this great website that offered free ones. It was at . There are all sorts of great patterns, I want to do them all, but alas I want to graduate from college more...therefore I will restrain myself.

And by the way, does anyone know how to rotate the pictures so they face the right way when you post them?
