We got so much accomplished this morning! Almost everyone spent some time working in the water table washing our pumpkins and gourds and filling up different bottles and containers with water. We also got to work on three costumes this morning- thank you for bringing in the shirts for us to use! And we also voted on our cooking project for tomorrow. First I asked everyone what they like to cook and eat:

  • Ava- Yogurt. Applesauce.
  • Zara- Food. Vegetables. Maybe bread?
  • Dylan- Bread
  • Kedar- Applesauce
  • Hamish- Burgers
  • Joseph- Challah bread
  • Samuel- Pancakes
  • Sanjay- Quesadilla

Then we took a vote between cooking pumpkin muffins or mini apple pies tomorrow:

Pumpkin muffins: Ava, Zara, Dylan

Apple Pie: Joseph, Samuel, Hamish, Sanjay, Kedar 

We'll make the pumpkin muffins next week instead.
