Josiah is really enjoying the dinners and discussions of his book club. This month was “The Island of Dr. Moreau” by H.G. Wells and our family was blessed to host. Since there was a shipwreck to start the book off, the boys and I had fun collecting various island themed items to create a small table scape…
Our dining room is small, and there are eight students plus the teacher, so we set up the long folding table in the living room. It was still close quarters, but they are a friendly group and didn’t seem to mind. We have a “salt water aquarium” DVD and Josiah chose a shark scene to play on the TV, as background, since they are circled by sharks in the beginning of the book.
Katie, your costume was so imaginative! (Since I know you are one of my faithful blog readers I thought I’d share your photo!) Dr. Moreau did horrible experiments on animals so you see a “Hyena-swine”. She was trying to look miserable in this photo-pretty good, huh? It’s hard for smiley Katie to not be grinning so please appreciate her excellent acting abilities…!
Josiah doesn’t look very insane in THIS photo, but he came to the party as Dr. Moreau. We bought our first tube of Halloween vampire blood (and our last) to make the leopard claw death marks on his lab coat.
