Baron enjoyed the dancing and the music and managed to keep his havoc to a minimal. Very much appreciated by his parents.
Layla and Latrisia after the concert with what I believe is a dead coyote.Markus, Layla and Nathan in the teepee room. It was pitch black in there besides the flash of my camera and nearly impossible to get them out to go home.

Every month Layla's kindergarten class invites the parents to spend half of the school day learning the best methods to help our children learn to read and write. They call this PALS, which stands for Parents as Literary Supporters.
Layla and I had fun using flash cards, searching for letters in the sand, painting, drawing, and reading. It is so great to be able to see her interact with her peers and watch the progress she has made so far in school.
I am so proud of my little angel and can not think of a better way to spend a day than watching her learn and progress into a beautiful little lady.

Thursday night was the monthly family night at Layla's school. It was a Halloween themed dance on one side of the gym with games and activities on the other side, and dinner set up in the halls. Dinner...not for us! You think you could get Layla to sit and eat when there was so much fun to be had in the gym? Not likely.
Layla is dressed as an Egyptian this year but she has a hard time saying Egyptian without focusing so when she sings it comes out "Walk like an evening ship".
The photos I took in the gym didn't really work out to well but here's a glimpse of Layla and her friends at the party.
The kindergartners performed a dance that they had practiced only 3 times but it was pretty cute anyways.
