It's kinda weird and sad not to do the whole Halloween thing like going to the school parties and parades.  Noah actually ended up trick or treating with Josh and some of his friends from school.  He wasn't going to go at all until they invited him at the last minute.  He dressed up as a basketball player.  Pretty original right?  lol  This will probably be his last year going.  Sad that he is growing up so fast and getting too old for some of these kiddie things.

We also went to the Scarecrow Festival

Noah tried out and made it for SBO (Student Body Officer) at Matheson.  He is so excited.  He campaigned really hard.  We had fun making his posters and figuring out each day what he could hand out to help him get elected.  He was one of the 4 chosen out of about 30 students to go to the finals.  I was so proud that he even wanted to try out.  He has to wear a shirt that says SBO Matheson every Monday and Wednesday.  He also gets to help do the school announcements and news, help at school events and assemblies.
