Yes. I know. It’s nearly Christmas and I’m just sharing about Halloween. That’s how life has been these last few weeks. Chaotic, and not in a good way. I debated whether or not to share this post but figured why not. I haven’t shared my life in so long, so why not start where I left off and catch up on here.
This year, my high schooler Anika was invited to compete at the National FFA Convention. I was never in the FFA and everything was a brand new experience for the both of us. We flew into Chicago, toured around Amish communities in Shipshewana, and ended up in Indianapolis. More on that adventure in the near future.
Our Low-Key Halloween:
First I just had to share snippets of our Halloween with you. You may recall that we get lots of trick or treaters every year….and I was curious to see how many we got with Halloween on a Wednesday this year. Well, we actually ended up with 28 more than 2017 with a grand total of 328 kids. We’ve had more in prior years (crazy I know!) but for a Wednesday I’d call Halloween a success.
I used to run around and try to hit up multiple activities with the kids, but the past couple of years I have really come to appreciate that I live in a community that brings so much festivities right to my neighborhood. It is nice to stay close to home on a school night too.
Stay tuned for more posts soon, very soon.
