Last week we had…

DSC_0661-13 days of snow!

Sam’s first basketball game of the season and a BIG win

a HUGE tidal-wave sized drenching of dirty slush and snow for Joel, Jack, and me by a passing car (because we were walking in the street and not on the unplowed sidewalks) causing great surprise and much laughter

a ladies craft night at the YWCA

lots of messes and dirt

cookie-baking with a friend

two days off school (for teacher-work days but we say for Thanksgiving!)

a boot-buying expedition for Sam and the discovery that my our 13-year old now has feet as big as his dad’s

a couple hours of putting flyers for Ten Thousand Villages in many, many mailboxes during a most gorgeous snowy Saturday afternoon

a ridiculous amount of rushing around mostly due to lack of planning and organization

a Saturday evening Thanksgiving feast with American friends and
a viewing of CNN Heros (OH MY WORD! I LOVE THIS AWARDS SHOW)
