Well, the day has come and gone. The kids at school actually kept it together today much more than I would have thought. We even had a snack of Apple Lanterns to give us energy for the evening’s adventure (not an original idea, but still fun). It will be interesting to see how they fare tomorrow. My vote is for crabby and slightly weepy.
I did not have the guts to put this up on the Center’s Facebook page, mostly because it is a stolen image. It does, however, sum up the week:
I didn’t keep track of how many children came to trick-or-treat at my house this year, and I appreciate not feeling like it was a contest where I was the only contestant. It did seem like it was a slow year, though. I closed shop at 8:20, but at 8:30 a 9-year-old boy was knocking at my door. He was all alone, and I don’t think he knew ‘porch light out’ protocol. I gave him some candy anyway, and am now typing this in my completely darkened house, avoiding the teenagers who scare me.
How was your Halloween?
