Charlie loves Halloween. So much so that he came in our room at 5:45 am this morning to tell us how excited he was that tomorrow is Halloween. I think we could have waited for that news, and probably could have told him that ourselves at a more decent hour!!
He has been planning all the details and knows what time I should pick him up from school tomorrow so he can fix up his graveyard out in our front yard. He had it all set up already on Sunday, but since the sprinklers would have disintegrated the cardboard construction, we convinced him to take them down until tomorrow. He’s been dreaming of it and telling us all about it for days. I think I’m excited for Halloween now too.
I have to appreciate his excitement, tenacity and focus. And so when the costume box came down from the attic tonight during math homework time, we allowed some flexibility and channelled Ben Franklin hoping for some inspiration and fun memories!!
