The Fall Carnival

Last night was the annual Scout Fall Carnival. My kids like Halloween, but it's not a huge deal. That's good since we don't want to spend a lot of time or money on costumes. This year Kendall wore her glitter girl soldier costume from last year, which just about fit. It's still a touch large, but she likes it and looks cute with her hat pulled down.

Delaney wanted to be a soldier as well, though for the first time in a long time he didn't have any camo clothing. So I bought him the pants and shirt seen her yesterday so that he'd be ready to go. With gloves and a hat, he was more of a hunter, but he liked it.

The carnival was in a local high school gym, a little subdued and quiet, but the kids had fun. Kendall loved the rope swing, the old climbing rope hanging for the ceiling. Delaney seemed to have fun with a few friends, walking around and talking more than anything.

I thought they'd want to leave early, but they were having fun and stayed, even asking if they could keep swinging as we cleaned up. A nice, quiet time and I got to talk to a few parents that I haven't seen much this year.
