So, the mostly-final report on the open house:

- The fire department actually gave out *80* smoke detectors, and they were thrilled.
-The urban forester (yes, we have one) gave out all her info on taking care of the trees in your yard.
- I'm not sure what recycling was giving out, but they gave it all out, and they were happy.
- The evening ESL teacher told her class to make a list of questions for all the city departments and go down to the party and ask them, and she was happy. She said it was the first time she'd ever had a field trip come to her.
- My boss' boss' boss sent me an email today saying that he had heard good things about the open house.
- The radio station interviewed several people; I haven't heard it, but it sounds like it went well.

I am *sore* today from walking around so much, and the dragon boat is taking up an awful lot of room in the closet, but it is so awesome that I have to keep it.

Now I have a party for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters and the LEGO team scrimmage, and the teen volunteers are making fleece blankets for the Christmas dinner at the community center. But once that's done, it's just Christmas at Hogwarts left for big work stuff in 2011!

How do you get all this done? Amazing!

BTW, M's nephew is now involved in the Lego robotics. BIL says their team is going to state....he couldn't however, tell us exactly what they did. As M says, BIL isn't very observant sometimes. :)

My house is a mess and we don't have TV. :D

Oh, cool! Their state must have already done their regionals - ours aren't until spring. (The scrimmage is just a practice.)

I'm sure if M asks his nephew directly he'll get *much* more detail. :D

Maybe. He's in Colorado.

Well...he might. David doesn't interact much -- can't get his nose out of the Nintendo DS long enough to form complete sentences. But Mark was there all day, you'd think he'd noticed something.

I'm so glad the open house went so well and everyone involved seemed to have such positive experiences with it. You really outdid yourself, Kit. *\o/*

I'm SO relieved! And I think it will have even more benefits down the road, as the people who were there tell their friends and families about all the stuff we'll be doing!
