So big doings tonight. Will has never been trick-or-treating before and last Halloween he wasn’t yet in the candy-eating business, so this year Halloween is emerging of epic proportions. Based on the questions I am getting from him, I picture this endless reel looping through his brain—PEOPLE ARE GOING TO HAND ME CANDY TONIGHT AND I AM GOING TO PUT IT IN MY PUMPKIN AND I AM GOING TO EAT IT—accompanied by doo-wop background singers chanting candycandcandycandycandycandy. Over and over.
Say a prayer for his teachers today—or just make that teachers everywhere!
Here’s a few snaps (and I do mean snaps, eek!) of one of my bumblebees yesterday during the nursery school parade.
The whole crew took a walk through the village, handing out boxes of raisins to shopkeepers and passers by. They did beautifully staying in a group and on the sidewalk until they spotted a giant leaf pile outside the library—they all broke rank and ran for the leaves en masse. You’ll have to imagine it, since I did not discuss splashing photos of unsuspecting fairies and firefighters on the Internet with their associated parents.
And, you might ask, what is Will doing walking down the street carrying an armload of leaves?
“This is so I can jump in them at home!”
Happy Halloween, all. Can’t wait to see your photos.
P.S. Are you going to do it? I am, though God help me and my readers, too, after thirty consecutive posts. I think we will be redefining what an actual post means in the next month. Join me?
