…thanks to Nancy Merrill for this week’s theme of livestock
….a fun day at school but not so nice this evening for the trick or treaters
Day 5 of my Book Fair had to end on Hallowe’en. Getting dressed up, lots of candy, sick children and very excited children and last minute purchases made for a very exhausting day. Pretty much every child dresses up for Hallowe’en and so do most of the staff at our school. At the end of the day we have our parade where the entire student body walks through the school and then outside around the the property. Unfortunately it rained all day so we had indoor recesses and we tried to keep the children calm with a movie during lunch. The rain had let up a little bit towards the end of the day so we decided to brave it and take the parade outside.
My friend L and I led the school throughout the halls and then around the school. Every year we try to come up with new costumes and when I saw this idea on Pinterest I knew that it was the costume for us. It was also extremely easy to put together and we had fun making the kids and parents try to figure out what we were. We dressed up as the Black Eyed Peas.
Here are a some pictures that I can share with you. The parents do an amazing job decorating the school and many classes took the time to decorate pumpkins.
It’s almost 8:00 and I’ve only had one knock on the door. Even my husband’s fabulous pumpkin isn’t attracting children to come up our walkway. Too much rain. I guess I’ll be taking a lot of candy back to school.

…..Ronovan Writes brings us the prompts haunt and release this week
Restless sleep haunts her
Nightmares seep into her core
….this week’s Carpe Diem prompt is based on Hallowe’en
Orange pumpkins wait
Jack-o-lanterns, pumpkin pie
What will be their fate?
Lights glow from within
Through hollow eyes, sawed off teeth
Big ones, little ones
Choosing is so difficult
Will it be one, two….?
