Fall Festivities

One thing I was sure we would be missing out on in leaving Ogden and Polk Elementary behind was the annual Fall Festival.  Imagine our joy when we learned our new school, Highlands Elementary, has it's own Fall Festival.   Of course we put it on the calendar.  For me it meant one less meal to prepare that week and for the kids a chance to cut loose and see friends "out of uniform".

The Methodists sponsor it every year (yes, we're at a public school) so we brought home our fair share of crucifix erasers, bookmarks, sand art, etc... but it also means the cotton candy, popcorn, snow cones, balloons, bounce houses  and carnival games are free. A fair trade, I'd say.  

We loved it! It made us a little less homesick for some of the activities we left behind.  The boys have already made plans to practice their BB gun skills for next year's carnival.  Yes, you heard that right, BB guns and crucifixes heavily dominated this Fall Festival, we are in Alabama, after all.
