Halloween Photos

Sorry they are a little late but there are some good ones here and worth the wait.  He had a great time trick or treating.  He did have a few houses where he forgot the “trick or treat” line and instead said, “please candy!”  Either way, it worked and he kept going until he couldn’t walk anymore.

Carving pumpkins…

We had a nice quiet weekend and decided to carve the pumpkins that we purchased when we went to the pumpkin patch with our friends.   He took the carving tasks very seriously and was really concentrating!

Play date success!

I was thrilled to have Carter’s play date today.  A mother of a child in Carter’s class reached out to me to set up a play date for the boys since they are the only boys in the class and her little one was having trouble adjusting to school.  As it turns out, they live in our neighborhood, will go to the same school, and are 6 months apart.  Also, they are Vietnamese. 

Today on the play date, I asked her if she could speak Vietnamese to Carter and, lo and behold, he still remembered!  I was so happy about that.  She would ask him questions in Vietnamese and he would answer in both Vietnamese and English.  It was so cute and it made me very happy.  I told her that I would really like him to retain his language and hopefully our regular play dates will help Carter keep his language and her son learn more English.  They were so cute together and we had a nice time at the playground.

Carter’s New Wheels

I love hand-me-downs….especially toys!  Thanks to a generous Aunt, Uncle, and cousins, Carter is now the proud owner of a pre-owned Mini!  He loves it and it has worked wonders as his “reward” for being a good listener!
