Heidi Hill is a guest blogger for the CPD’s Developmental Skills Laboratory (DSL), a day program for adults with disabilities. Heidi loves to type and each month she’ll be sharing the fun activities that she and her “buds” are doing at DSL.

All of the DSL-buds spookified the entire work-site upon this high campus. We made cylinder-candles in the shape of an actual mummy. University buds also wore costumes. We listened to spooky music. We also painted pumpkins. Everybody just had the greatest moments ever. We'll never forget what you guys have done around here. On Halloween we all loaded up and went to Pizza Pie Café in our costumes for lunch!  We had lots of fun eating salad and pizza!

We also attended one amazing Pumpkin Walk and so enjoyed all the scenes that were there.  Daurie’s favorite was one of Lucy selling Vita Meata Vegemin.

We also went to the pumpkin patch and everyone chose their own pumpkin, then they politely thanked those kind men so much for inviting their favorite buds into the patch exactly where those orange pumpkins grow huge, fat, round, orange, pumpkin. Heidi and her buds enjoyed Halloween.

All of Heidi's buds went to the apple orchard, too. When everybody reached there, they saw lots of apples picked, cored, and then made into apple juice, applesauce and apple-cider. Everybody thought that those products were mighty yummy. That apple orchard has the tallest trees that Heidi and her friends had ever seen, this year. Those apple products really were juicy, and super yummy, other than being sticky and messy, they tasted OK!

The most exciting thing that happened here at the worksite was that a whole bunch of USU football players came to visit us! They were just about the biggest guys Heid and the buds had ever seen! They talked about football and how early they have to get up—at 6:30! They have to practice to be their very best. They played with us, and we each got a genuine, official photo with their autographs!

Whew!  We were busy in october!
