Ms. Eileen and I had sooooo much fun on Friday when 30 of our storytime alumni (in grades K,1,2) returned for an afternoon of stories, songs, a craft, games, and a snack with a Halloween theme. We squeezed a lot into the hour and a half we had together, including a walk from the elementary school to the library. The children were remarkably well-behaved, and just plain fun to be with. Thank you to Maria's mother for supplying all 30 kids with popcorn and to my own daughter for helping me make "Dry Bones" (meringue cookies) to share as an after-school snack.
We hope all of your children enjoyed this nostalgic visit and we certainly hope to do it again soon. We'll keep you posted. In the meantime, we look forward to seeing you all at the library.
Happy Halloween Everyone! (Be safe.)
