Time Well Spent With My Granddaughter
Over the past weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with my seven year old granddaughter and work on a pumpkin. My granddaughter drew her favorite pet, a "cat" and I was in charge of the carving. I think we made a pretty good team. See for yourself.
Children are full of excitement while running from house to house on Halloween. Remind them that even though they can clearly see an approaching vehicle's headlights, it's very difficult for drivers to see an approaching vehicle's headlights, it's very difficult for drivers to see pedestrians at night. Use the sidewalks and work one side of the street at a time.
Remember when trick-or-treating to carry flashlights and have your children use hands free glow sticks to keep them safe and visible in the dark.
