Another round of trick-or-treating is in the books—for the four youngest. Luke and Bridget spent the evening at a contra dance. Here's the rundown on identities/aliases: Henry is Van Gogh, Jack is Obie Wan Kenobi, Luke is a cyborg cowboy, Stella is a ninja, Bridget is Hermione from Harry Potter, and Sam is clashing.
Stella spends most of her life barefoot, but with winter coming on, she decided she needed warm slippers. These little beauties are keeping her toes toasty — for now. Knowing her like I do, I expect them to be forgotten in week.
A few months ago, Luke, Bridget, Henry, and some of their friends started going contra dancing. Sam and I tagged along to tonight's event, because my friend Chris was doing the calling. We've known each other since high school and try to stay in touch, but it's been years since we've seen one another in real life. She was very surprised to see me, and we didn't have much time to catch up, but seeing Chris was lovely. (The group shot was taken by Lorelei Tyce; she's the one in the blue sweater.)
