Happy Trick or Treating
We had a great time Trick or Treating last night with friends! Arianna was Daphne from Scooby Doo and Ryan was Batman. While trick or treating, Arianna was on a mission and wanted to speed door to door but she had to slow down to wait on her friends. It reminded me of Easter when she found a ton of eggs. She gets a task in her head and is obsessed with it. Ryan enjoyed getting candy and hanging out with friends. Both kids really enjoyed Halloween!
In the wake of many choosing not to celebrate Halloween because of what it "celebrates", I am glad that we chose to continue to celebrate Trick or Treating. I honestly don't think our kids are celebrating or supporting Satanic rituals. It was just innocent fun to dress up and spend time with friends. Halloween continues to be one of my favorite holidays.
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” - Fred Rogers

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor souls who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." --Theodore Roosevelt
Who am I? That is a difficult question to answer! I am a wife to a loving man! I am a Mom of 2 wonderful children of which I homeschool. I love to scrapbook and take pictures mainly of the kids. I have five dachshund that are as close to kids as they get.
