End of the Year

As it turns out, the various and sundry end-of-year festivities were a good thing, even though getting ready for them was sometimes a challenge.

Mr. D got to channel both his inner Mozart:

(That's his "Yay, I did it!" smile.)

... and, in these "Colonial Conversations,"

... he got to rock a very colonial-looking braid:
Thanks to the all the teachers
who helped make this year
such a great one for our guy!

This is kind of like the Mr. D version of "Where's Waldo?"...

After running 25 miles with me
(one mile at a time!),
Mr. D was more than ready for the final 1.2
(500 kids ran this last leg to complete
the Princeton Kids' Marathon)...

... finishing felt great!

Our next mission was to provide water
to the runners of the 10K that followed
immediately after the kids' race...

they ran right up our street
and they needed our help!

(A special thanks to our friends
who came out to help,
and to the adult runners
who took water and poured it on their heads,
much to the delight of our crew.)
