Happy Halloween, everyone! The top photo was taken at Carl Schurz Elementary in New Braunfels yesterday. I was telling the Medusa story to the third grade, and this is my impression of someone being turned to stone. (In case you’re wondering: no, they did not demand blackmail money to keep the photo from being published.) The bottom picture is the Minotaur from the Wilton Library Halloween party. Yes, there really is a person inside that amazing costume. I’ll let you decide which photo is scarier!
Tonight, I’ll be trick-or-treating with my zombie pirate son, Patrick. Have a fun evening and stay safe!
