Here's who we all are--
Abe-- Zeus (God of the sky), Betsy--Hera (Goddess of marriage), Clark--Poseidon (God of the sea), Bethany-- Aphrodite (Goddess of love and beauty), Elinor-- Athena (Goddess of wisdom), Faith-- Artemis (Goddess of the hunt), Cannon-- Hermes (God of travel and communication), and George-- Ares (God of war).
We are missing one of the moms in this picture-- she was taking care of a little one.
We went on a parade to the park.
Is it a real parade if there's no one to cheer for you?
I can't remember the last time we had such beautiful mild weather for Halloween. I'll take it!
We played musical chairs-- first with the little kids.
As we proved today, you're never too old to enjoy musical chairs. And as you get older, the less rules and more violence, the better.
The music for the Mom's Round was Thriller. I was dancing.
Gabrielle was victorious, as was her daughter in her round, and her niece in her round, and her nephew in his round. There is a very strong musical chairs gene in that family.
The men's only round was very competitive.
I guess the teenage boys hanging out in the front yard looked like trouble because two cop cars came to our house to question why they weren't in school. He further questioned them when they replied that they were homeschooled and having a Halloween party, "So if I called Riverton High School they wouldn't know about you?" Abe went out and assured them that all was well.
We all got quite a kick out of it and wonder which of our conscientious neighbors we have to thank for the visit from the police. We homeschooling mothers were bummed we missed out on a learning opportunity for our younger kids to meet and talk to a real policeman!
