Halloween 2017

Friends. The whole bunch.Halloween is probably one of the children’s favorite holidays. They were anticipating it for a long while. Aroshka even had post Halloween blues the next morning, but luckily the sadness passed quickly.

This year they chose to be a puppy and a giraffe. Danya was a little worried about Arosha’s costume pick since the vast majority of boys his age were dressed as either a superhero/movie character, someone scary or someone like a policemen, fireman or some kind of warrior. Daniel was worried that other children would tease Arosha and ruin the joy of it for him, but luckily this did not happen.

Anna's class.This year our school has a new principal — a young woman, who so far seems to be very nice and well liked by both teachers and parents. Our previous principal was a bit rigid for my taste. He was a young man with a military background and sometimes I was not sure if he cared more about the school, or his career advancement. Anyhow, with this new principal, the children were allowed to wear costumes to school, and also the parents association prepared a trick-or-treating event for all grades on the school yard. I think that something like this did not happen for a long time, if ever.

Anna's teacher.After school we went home to eat and then meet up with the usual gang — Erica, Ilona and Natasha with their children. We went trick-or-treating through our local stores as we do every ear. It took us about an hour, and the children were super excited. We went to the playground afterwards. They weather was on the cold side, but at least it was not raining.

Our units.When we got home, Arosha talked me into continuing trick-or-treating throughout our building. I don’t like doing it to be completely honest, but I did not have a heart to deprive him of this, since we’ve done it every year for the last 4 years. I did put a time limit on this activity though, so we did not go through the whole building, but just through our wing.

Units.They got two huge buckets of candy at the end. They will eat very little of it though since I limit their sugar intake, and normally they prefer ice-cream to any other sweets. Anna’s eczema resurfaced the next day — she is sensitive to certain things, and I guess all those artificial colors and other bad things in candy might have triggered it.

All in all it was a happy day for the children and they already started to plan their next Halloween.
