Simon has had a great day, dashing off to school with his costume and a ghoulish stick which makes extremely spooky noises in his backpack, all set for Halloween. Guess which one he is! His class set up a haunted house in the rec room for the other class, most of whom are younger students. Simon was the spooky door opener and let the students in to crawl through a maze with “ghosts” banging on desks on top of them! Then they had to put their hands into boxes to feel different things – one was someone’s head, one contained peeled grapes, another had cold spaghetti – yuk! Then back to the reality of Arrowsmith exercises! After Arrowsmith finished we walked to Elizabeth and Shanah’s to join everyone for a Halloween dinner – pumpkin soup and pizzas! All dressed up, Simon and the others set off around the neighbourhood to trick and treat at all the houses with a light on in their front porch or a lit pumpkin – there were some very impressive pumpkins! Simon, however, was more interested in his loot! Back to Elizabeth’s and that was enough for some but Simon and Lauren were keen for more so we set off to a new neighbourhood, being driven by Diane and directed by Leah – we found a good spot with plenty of houses with lights on and pumpkins lit – lots more loot later, with the rain pouring down now, Simon and Lauren were finally satisfied! Back to Elizabeth’s for delicious hot chocolates and then home to put the loot away – he has enough chocolates, wine gums, and lollipops to last a very long time! No wonder he loves Halloween so much! We hope you had a Happy Halloween too!
