There is nothing like a yearly tradition to mark the passage of time. It became so apparent to me the rate at which my children are growing by the way trick treat goes each year. Just 2 years ago Ben was so little he needed help up and down every stoop on the street. The boys stuck together like glue. One year ago he did much better but still needed a little help and got tired quickly. The boys stuck together like glue.
This year Ben needed very little help and his stamina equaled that of the older kids. Miles met up with some school friends and stuck to them like glue. Ben noticed and decided to stick to me. Changes like this can be hard to accept but I know they are good and necessary. Happy Halloween!
