Welcome back with Halloween photos!

Hi!  We haven't posted here in a long while but there's been a lot going on since the end of the summer.  We reopened about halfway through September and it's been busy and filled with a lot going on, from starting Girl Talk again, working on our upcoming art project, playing video games, and of course, our Halloween Party a couple weeks ago!

So here are some photos from the party and comments from our members on what they liked.

Jamila: "I like the game, I like the dance, I like the monster.  I like when me and Emily was taking pictures."

Issa and Bethany looking creepy

Janice: What did you like about the party?

Issa: "We broke the pinata and everyone was jumping and dancing.  Then we all tackled Eric and punched the pinata and then we all left."
