The day was about service to others as well as fun for our kids, but with two little ones, Wesley and I knew it would difficult to do both. We decided to let Wesley and the boys stay home and I was able to 100% volunteer my time for the day. What a great idea! Without having to worry about Jackson and Philip, I was able to really help out, and I really enjoyed the day. I was "traffic control" for the lunch line; candy-hander-outer for Trunk-or-Treat; and on clean-up duty! Tiring, but very enjoyable!
Kate and Ben had the same idea as Wesley and me. Their boys stayed at home and Kate worked hard at the Festival. It was fun to serve along side of her! Of course it wasn’t all work…we started off the morning with some pumpkin bread and drinks at Starbucks!
