Just in case you are one of the unlucky few who have been able to visit us, let me walk you through my place of employment...
I work in a building that used to be an old plantation hospital. It's pretty huge ('huge' is a relative term on this little island), and it's spread out over a good sized campus. Because there are so many different buildings on the campus there are a few different companies that reside there.
The main building is where I work.
And in the building directly next door-as in I could throw my shoe and hit it-is Sage's daycare.
On Halloween Sage's daycare lets the kiddos dress up and go trick-or-treating through my work. There are about 50-75 employees that line the hall handing out goodies while the youngins parade through.
She was a little overwhelmed at all the people at this point and just reverted back to what her teacher told her, "Hold open your bag Sage!" So she did. She stood in front of each person with her little bag open till they gave her candy, then she kept standing there, so they gave her another piece. Excellent strategy. Eventually she was moved forward by the pack of kids onward to the next person with candy.
Another program that resides in the same building as Sage's daycare and my work is an alternative high school. It's a temporary high school for the bad kids who get either suspended or expelled from school. They got to hand out candy as well. Sage thought they were awesome. Great.
You don't think she sticks out do you?
The lady in the front of the line is her teacher. The people in the back are parent volunteers.
