Yesterday FirstRain celebrated Halloween and this year we invited all of the Rainmakers’ kids to partake in the festivities! In preparation for the party, each section of the office was given a pumpkin to carve and each team really went all out. I was surprised by the creativity each team brought to their pumpkin, from Nick’s “pumpkin eating another” pumpkin to Daniela’s “green wig” pumpkin, to my team’s very own “carrot” pumpkin— they were all awesome! During the party we let the kids pick a winner and Carolyn/ Laura’s “cat” pumpkin came out victorious.Julie organized a Halloween scavenger hunt and each kid received a Halloween themed good bag—filled with candy. The kids were very excited (although the parents probably not so much). The party was a fun excuse to bring all of the FirstRain kids together and they sure were cute!
