Raintree events

A few weeks ago, Coop and I went to his class's potluck.  Here he is with Ava and Madeline, giggling like lunatics.

His food.  He started, of course, with the cupcake.  Made it through the pudding and some of the grapes, and then got distracted by the playground.
Note the pig-in-a-blanket.  When one of the parents dropped those off at the table, another parent said, "Oh, my child will be so exicted.  He usually only gets pigs-in-a-blanket at this picnic each year." 

Hunh.  My kid practically gets them every Tuesday.  Oh well.  We like nitrates.

Coop's class also took its yearly field trip to the pumpkin patch.  Here's Cooper and his friend Thomas on the hay wagon:

Cooper's pumpkin.  The kids are told that they can pick one "as big as your head."  Not bad.

That's pretty good stuff. I think it's great that you can trust Cooper with pumpkin carving tools. We tried with Christopher and it didn't end injuries, but we came close a few times. He almost succumbed to his hyperactivity, but I was able to keep him reigned in well enough to avoid any problems.
