As a mother of four, a grandmother of eight, a great-grandmother of 11 and an elementary school teacher for 35 years, I would like to compliment the parents for raising such well-mannered and thoroughly delightful children who came to our door on Halloween. I handed out well over 100 treats and without exception the children were polite and fun to talk to.
I especially remember the little boy who asked, "May I please have a bottle of water instead of a treat?" Needless to say, he got both.
When I was in the checkout line at Walmart early this week, the woman in front of me was commenting on the politeness of the trick-or-treaters.
We certainly can be proud of our children and the parents who raised them.
