MoBob returned from his visit to Ohio and Indiana. I hurt my knee and as a result am hobbling about on crutches. I had lots of fun activities planned for myself - visiting NPR, Kreeger Museum, and so on - but cancelled due to immobility.
Followed by a group from Finland.
Upon his return, MB took Z to the community celebration at the National Gallery of Art.
The library organized a stuffed animal sleepover.
Side Yards allowed us to experience some carnival fun.
We voted, and we were proud to do so.
Our Relief Society organized a service auction. I won an evening of baby-sitting, a harp performance (which I donated to the congregation), and assistance from the sister missionaries in assembling a mini-scrapbook.
STEM night at school was a lot of fun.
We attended a Veterans' Day ceremony at a local park.
We volunteered at the DC Diaper Bank. Since the warehouse has a separate play area for small humans (donated by IKEA!), this will probably a regular family service activity.
Surprisingly Z got a clean bill of health at the dentist, given his general resistance to brushing teeth. We went to French singing time, MB took Z to Lego Club, and I attended a Girls' Night In.
Although we'd visited Watkins Regional Park before, this was our first visit to the Wizard of Oz playground, for a late fall birthday.
Z leapt and galloped his way through his first ballet recital.
I went to a feminist salon at a friend's house, and then a baby sprinkle for two friends expecting number two.
We woke up early for the Big Dinosaur Show at the National Theater.
We tried our hand at making a parol, the classic Filipino Christmas decor.
We made a fall tree out of leaves we collected on our walks to and from school.
And a handprint turkey.
We spent Thanksgiving dinner with our friends who are moving to Cairo. Then we ended the day with a beautiful sunset at Hains Point.
