That's one sweet lil pumpkin head!
Our Autumn circle time ends in a story called Harvest Moon Magic. We are on week 3 of this story, so to say the girls were
I took this picture a while ago when I was trying out the story...it changed a bit.
This afternoon tension was high as we noticed the surrounding grey clouds closing in...this would block our view of the moon!!! So you know what we did? We went to the park...climbed to the top of the play structure and tried to blow the clouds away. I kind of laughed inside as we did this. What city kids. Climbing a play structure instead of a mountain to blow the clouds away...oh well. We're pretty sure it worked because by 5pm the sky was clear. The girls camped out in the backyard until it got dark...we even had dinner out there on the quilt. Of course there were like 5,000 photo opportunities...but no camera. Poo!
iPhone pic of the moon above our garage...between two trees!
We finally saw it come up over the surrounding houses. By then it was not the crazy golden hue...but it was an awesome sight an impressed the girls just the same. I let them stay up until Papa got home and then we all walked down to the beach to get a better view...
We came home and eventually got them settled (a good hour past their normal bedtime!). I am glad the night was special for them. I think it's important to keep Earth's natural magic alive and exciting for children.
When I popped my head in a minute ago to give them one last kiss, I noticed that the Autumn faeries had already visited and left gifts of the Harvest...
I took some pictures, but since the iPhone doesn't really work in the dark...you can't see much.
How many faeries do you think it took to lift these pumpkins?
