Halloween came at the tail end of our travels and travellers so last minute was the name of the game. It may have been better for the kids as all their (tremendous) excitement was packed into a couple of days preparation rather than weeks.
We went trick-or-treating with our friends Anna (Baby Bear) and Gretchen (Goldilocks) and Elijah and Sadie chose different costumes. Sadie was actually all set to go as a doctor (naturopath of course 😉 and changed to a fairy princess as we were walking out the door. Elijah opted for the dragon over the ghost that proved not to be practical as he couldn’t see where he was going (see below).
Our LEAP group had a Halloween party at Bear Creek Park. The setting and the weather were perfect. The kids (over 20 of them!) made Halloween art on foam and bobbed for apples in addition to playing on the playground, digging in the dirt, and just plain running around.
