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.

As part of the Kids Euro Festival, we saw a group from Lithuania.


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.

Your son is a very lucky boy to have such amazing parents. It's wonderful to see him grow up into such a big boy.

I suddenly sound like my gran. huh?!
