A Halloween Turning Point....

I think we have reached a turning point.



The definition of a turning point according to google is, "an action point that is a reaction to an obstacle in the way of a protagonist’s objective; turning points raise the stakes, move the action in a different direction or to a different playing area, and force the protagonist to take a new or different tack."

Hmmmm.... indeed, Halloween of 2008 is a turning point. My youngest has shifted from trick or treating to Halloween parties. She has surrendered the sack full of candies and goodies and instead immersed herself to the new path that was opened to her. Grade 7 and grade 8s were allowed to attend the Halloween party at school. Being in grade 7, it was her and her classmates first time to go. She had her costume and camera to school and embraced the new freedom.

She got home all tired and sleepy... and was quite ready to miss the traditional evening trick or treating stroll this year.


*sigh* I was hoping to get sugar high tonight...

I dear say... they are almost as sweet as the candies and chocolates... almost....

Share my point of view... said...

Happy Halloween! I'm glad to know she's finally able to attend the Halloween party! We do not celebrate Halloween here. ;)

Good question Juleste! The obstacle here I would guess is age. She has finally reached the age where candies and chocolates would weigh less than the excitement that the sociaization gives her.

tahnks for dropping by!!!
