Brookelynn got ready early.
She went downtown to help pass out candy
to the hoardes of kids who come for the "Safe Walk".
We went one year.
And never went again.
Walking up and down three blocks of Main Street.
to get ready a couple of hours later.
We picked up Brookie
and stopped at Grandpa and Grandma's.
The plan was for Jakie to be Albert Einstein.
But most people just thought he was a mad scientist.
Then we returned to our neighborhood.
And let this motley crew head out on their own.
With LOTS of instructions, boundaries and a deadline.
