One month and one day ago, Phoebe and her fellow first graders took a field trip to a farm. They each came back with a pumpkin. Phoebe demanded to carve hers as soon as we returned home from school. Any why not?

She did most of it herself, including the clean up. She even prepped the seeds for roasting. And then we took pictures because she was so proud of her Jackie-O-Lantern. (It is a girl.)

It didn’t last until Halloween since she carved it a little early, but she enjoyed it thoroughly.
