Michael is off to the pumpkin patch, with Oliver's class, to get 200 pumpkins that were donated to the school for the Halloween festival on Saturday. Tomorrow, each child will carve a pumpkin that will illuminate a path. Guided by angels, the younger children of the school are led on a journey through beautifully decorated classrooms. Each year the school prepares for a special fairy tale play and the children receive small gifts from each room. This is Oliver's big year, since he is in fourth grade, he can try his courage on the perilous path. Each child must walk this path alone and in the dark meeting challenges along the way. I am so proud of him for being so brave. I will be trying out my wings as one of the angel guides and enjoy the sweet faces who truly believe the wings are real.
