Tomorrow is Halloween. On our campus we celebrate the day and one of the most wonderful aspects, besides our students getting as much candy as possible, is our parents decorating their cars. The event is called Trunk and Treat. When our parents come on campus, they have bags of “materials” in their cars. Then the back door opens, and creativity begins. Our parents don costumes as invite the students to come and visit their cars which have been transformed into sometime very spooky scenes. There is no contest winner here- just sharing. Sharing of creativity, of the joy of celebrating, and yes of themselves as they think about what this day meant to them as children. When I walk the line of cars, I hope to greet each parent and thank them for their contribution, as well as admire their design. I ask them how they created it, and if they do it for others. Most say no- just for Craig. My interpretation is – at the safe place we strive to be for our families.
