one thing i kept on my mind while he was gone was that by halloween he would be home trick or treating with the kids. and he was.
the day started off at our school's annual halloween carnival. the pto puts on this event on halloween day which makes it exciting (and exhausting) for everyone.
there was a parade on the sport's court with each grade showing off their costumes.
after the parade the kids came down to the lower parking lot where class booths had been set up with fun games and activities. we had a trackless train, bouncy houses and acroflights, face painting, pumpkin decorating, a book fair, snacks and lunch.
by the end of the day my feet were killing me, i felt exhausted and drained, but my heart was happy. we were together as i had imagined and that's the best treat of all.
