It’s Halloween time!
We have been to the apple picking farm, pumpkin patch, and local fall festival. My daughter has been loving the pony rides and train rides. We even took a tour around a small village to look for decorated pumpkin people. Our book display is full of Halloween and fall books.
We’re getting into the Halloween spirit with Halloween yoga for kids! How about you?
