Gentry's Pre-K class took a trip to Poppell Farms to the pumpkin patch this year. I'm glad they did because we didn't make it this year like we have every year since Jubal was a year old.
I didn't get to go on the field trip with him due to work, as usual, but I had friends that took some pictures for me, and for that I am thankful. I got to see how much fun he was having with his friends throughout the day.
Gentry swears he was smiling. Haha!

My little pumpkin.
Gentry is second from the left end.
He came home talking about how much fun he had. I'm so glad he got to go. I'm especially happy he got to go with all of his friends. He probably had more fun with them than he would have had with us anyway. ;)
It was so nice to get to do Trick-or-Treat on Halloween this year. Our small town usually designates a different night to go door to door other than Halloween, but because Halloween fell on a Monday, we were able to really enjoy it this year.
The boys picked their own costumes this year. Jubal chose to be Hulk, and Gentry chose a Transformer. I don't even know what this particular transformer's name is since I don't watch the show nor have I seen any movies about them. That's what they picked, though, so we went with it.
Larson picked out a gorilla mask instead of going as some type of clown this year. Since there has been so much talk of clowns trying to lure children into danger, we both felt is was best not to do that costume again. Haha! I picked out a "Purge" mask, one like the young adults wore in the first movie. It was so hot, though, that none of us actually wore the masks. The boys wore their costumes, just not their masks.
I didn't get a picture of me in my mask, but I did save this picture off of my Snapchat. Ha!
The boys scored so much candy. This was their bounty just from trick-or-treating. This doesn't include their stash from Trunk-or-Treat at school on Friday, or from their friend, Brooks's, birthday party on Saturday. They ended up with 3 gallon sized Ziploc bags crammed full of candy. Holy cow!!
It was lots of fun. Gentry was riding in the back of the truck singing about it being the best Halloween ever. I love making these childhood memories with them. I hope they always remember the joy that comes with being a child.
The boys got their soccer pictures back last week. They turned out so cute. I'm a super proud mom.
Jubal is such a great soccer player, and for it to only be Gentry's first time, he has come so very far. As I said in a previous post, we (Larson) requested for him to be placed on the same team as Jubal which put him just turning 4, playing with 6-7 year olds that have been playing at least one year.
Thanks to an awesome coach, Mr. Stevie, Gentry knows so much more about the game, and you should see him dribble. He's great with his feet.
Tonight is their last game of the season. We're getting pizza for the team. I'm so thankful for the friendships my boys make. I don't just sign my boys up to play ball, I sign them up to learn good sportsmanship, team work, how to take direction, how to be graceful when losing, and how to win humbly.
Here's to next soccer season. Cheers!
