It was a busy week leading up to Halloween, getting ready for all the celebrations and class parties. It was fun, but I’m glad it’s done! Good news on the braces front — not only did we get Halloween colored bands, but we have appointments scheduled to get them removed! Just in time to eat all that gooey candy she hasn’t been able to eat since getting them on. 😉 We also got to see the eclipse, which was pretty neat — getting a sunbreak at the right time in October in Seattle is pretty rare, so I tried to make the most of it. I think I was more excited than the kids, though. Oh, and I also earned my yellow belt in karate! Whew!
