Halloween in the ‘hood

We spent our first Halloween in Cherrydale, and it didn’t disappoint! We kicked off celebrations at school, with a Halloween parade, and ended back at home for a pizza-filled block party. The great, spooky decorations at home were the icing on the cake!

O Moves on Up

It came quicker than we may have thought, but Owen transitioned from the infant to the toddler room at school on his first birthday. He joined the same room Colin did four years prior, and so far is enjoying the new adventure!
