This post is for the benefit of seleneheart in particular. *big smooches, condolences and see you in the big show*

Back from Mitzvah Day at the Abram Simon school, which I hadn't realized was a block down from the high school in DC where there have been all the shootings we've been watching on the news. It was a bit chaotic but the kids (ours, the ones from our synagogue and the students and families from the school) had a really good time. So many people came that they ran out of food and had to order more. We were mostly in the arts and crafts rooms, decorating bags and boxes and stuff -- my kids can draw monsters on fabric for hours -- but we also got to see a breakdancing demonstration and some cheerleader-type dancing.

In a few minutes we are picking up the kids from a friend's house and going to my parents', where my sister is visiting with her three girls. Everyone is sure to be in a good mood about the Maryland game, except perhaps my sister who is waiting to see the outcome of the Wisconsin game that's on now. I have conflicting information on whether Penn or Princeton won the Ivy title...ESPN said Penn, the paper says Princeton. So I may be even happier or slightly grumpier later.

ETA: Have just learned that seleneheart was deprived of watching the final minutes of overtime because her local station switched games! Must apologize for taunting.
