I love to see my son beaming and that is just what was going on last night at the 4H Halloween Party. We are flexing our time with 4H - partly because we live so far away from the Kennel where all CCI classes and 4H club meet, I can't justify going twice per week on a regular basis, and partly because Haddie has not graduated from Puppy School which is a mandatory before we can devote our CCI Training classes to just the 4H club.
But we have been given the invitation to always come to the 4H Parties in addition to Puppy School. Last night was one of those events. I am so glad we didn't let the drive stop us, because my son was smiling the entire night being in charge of our pup with his sister by his side, dressed up, and mingling with new friends.
Just a second - here's a behind the scenes story that took place literally ten minutes before we had to leave home for our long drive.
Son: "Mom, I'm not gonna dress up."
Me: "Why? It's a costume party."
Dad: "Uhm, why are we going if you are not going to participate?"
Son: "My real Halloween costume is just TOO big and awkward for this."
Daughter: "Hey, I got an idea ... come with me ..."
Thankfully my son was in an agreeable mood and off they went upstairs and returned five minutes later ready to go. Whew!! PERFECT costumes!!! Not only did my girl figure out their costumes, but Haddie's costume was handmade four years ago for our pet beagle, Cora, by my girl too.

Halloween Party Fun 4H Style was such a great Treat!
