one of the teachers wrote me out a schedule for the halloween party at work (it was on saturday) and kept misspelling halloween. i was a bit worried it was an omen (about the party), but it was actually quite fun. tommy lasted about five minutes before becoming obnoxious (and that was before the party actually started!) but i called yoshi and asked him to come and take him away. hiro and sasha had a great time, and even kept their costumes on the whole time. of course, it helped that they didn't have anything else to wear! they were the only kids in costume, but they didn't care. afterward, i took them to joyfull for lunch and they were very much admired for their cute costumes. ah, helloween.
