My daughter, Kelly, is the home room mom for Marley's 1st grade class. She asked if I would come to the Halloween Party and read a story to the kids. I read the story of the Runaway Pumpkin, then I cut the top off of one of the pumpkins I brought. The little ragamuffins were thrilled to reach inside and feel how slimy it was. They all took a pumpkin seed home with them.
