Blogging Through the Alphabet: C is for Costume Contest
I love this time of the year! The weather is getting cooler, leaves are changing, and the holiday festivities begin. Alyssa and I recently attended our local library's Monster Bash. These community events are always so much fun. She played several games, received candy, had her fortune told, and posed in the photo booth. The library also held a Costume Contest which was organized into several different age groups. My daughter always participates, but she hasn't won since she was a toddler. This year she went as Evie from Descendants 2. We added in a few more details this year and she was one of the winners for her age group. She won an awesome chapter book! She was ecstatic, because she really wanted to start reading this particular series. Today I just wanted to share with her a picture of her in her costume and the book she won. I love that the library chooses to encourage reading by offering books as prizes.
I am a stay at home mom to my daughter, Alyssa. I taught 2nd grade for three years after earning my Masters Degree in Education. I love teaching! But, I am enjoying every moment I have at home with my daughter. I enjoy seeing her learn new things through exploration and play. I am always on the search for new, fun ways to enhance her learning experience. We are an eclectic homeschool family. Please enjoy browsing this blog.
