After Halloween and trick-or-treat, children need to reminisce. Of course they do! They write picture stories about their adventures on Halloween night. We talk about costumes and candy. Remembering the good times is important.
When a child talked about being Minnie Mouse for Halloween, I remembered that was Gloria’s first ever Halloween, going trick-or-treating in 2010. She was dressed as Minnie Mouse!
We pulled out Gloria’s journals and found the photo.
Children were pressed against me. Everyone wanted to see.
“She really is Minnie Mouse.”
“She’s riding a bike, too.”
I said, “Gloria has had other Halloween adventures. She has been trick-or-treating many times. Let’s find her pictures.” We went through her journals; she has been trick-or-treating seven times. Seven!
Gloria has a way with children. She has always been the best friend, ever. She shines on Halloween. Well, she shines all the time. Gloria, you have been the best through the years. Here’s to many more years to come.
