The Lead Up

The final days leading up to Halloween were made even more exciting by some fun family time and red ribbon week at the girls' school (with a different dress-up theme each day). Grandad also came to the rescue and filled in at Donuts with Dad for both Preston and the girls. Preston's was on Halloween and the girls' was the next morning. I thought it seemed a little crazy to give kids donuts on Halloween and the morning after, but the more sugar the better, right :-)?! The kids were all so excited Grandad could take them and had so much fun!

Preston and I also had lunch with both girls that day, which ended up working out well since Addie fell into a huge puddle at recess right before lunch and needed all new clothes to change into. Poor Ad :(

AND lastly, we released the very last moth that afternoon. All 5 caterpillars transformed, which was pretty incredible. This one had a little something on his antenna that we couldn't manage to get off and Addie was very concerned about it, but he flew off eventually so hopefully he made it. Thanks to Emily for providing us with all these caterpillars. It seemed extra cool to have "wild" ones :-).
