We set up a pumpkin and gourd still life and set to work drawing.  This was a lovely art project to slow us down a bit.

My girl who is easily frustrated with drawing was able to draw simple pumpkins.  I had a leaf rubbing project set up, just in case.

I saw the idea for these adorable toilet paper tube owls somewhere in blog land.  I just knew this would be a great project.

We lit our first fire of the season.
