It went so well, y'all! We were hoping for 100 people and there were actually between 200 and 300. The kids had a great time, the community center looked awesome, we did not run out of food too quickly, the mayor seemed happy, lots of people took the tour of our computer classroom and saw everything we can teach up there, some people checked out library books...

I did not sit down for eight hours straight except for one time when I drove from the community center to the library and back. I have over 12,000 steps on my pedometer.

Here's the dragon boat! Big cardboard Viking boat with shields!

And here's our library booth: Big fake dragon and fire!

The "Read" poster is Enrique Iglesias. I brought it over to hang on the wall, but didn't have a frame big enough. The staff decided he was too pretty not to display. :D

THANK YOU for all your good wishes! I'll find out tomorrow how the dignitaries and city staff liked it, but I think they were happy too. And the fire department gave out 65 smoke detectors, so those are some people who will be safe this winter!

Hee! YAY! I knew it would be a success! \o/

That dragon boat is AWESOME.

Also, free smoke detectors = another big YAY!!!

I am SO HAPPY! I was really worried for the first ten minutes or so when nobody seemed to be showing up, but then TONS of people arrived, and the ones who came first didn't show signs of leaving, and then all of a sudden the place was packed! Hooray!

I didn't even notice until after I took the picture that they had hung the Viking hats on his head and tail. :)

Yes, the fire guys were very happy! I didn't get to talk to the police, but I hope they had a good time too.

I actually took the pictures after most people had left, because I forgot to take any before! The thing on the stage is Christmas lights, and they were plugged in while stuff was going on. :)

The thing I'm proudest of is all the stuff that will *stay* there, like the new pictures on the walls and the floor mats and all that stuff that will make it look homier. I'll try to get some pics of the classroom upstairs next time I go. I'm so happy with how it looks now!

(*hopes will not have to give back the stuff I stole liberated from the children's room closet*)
