One of the things I love about Anna's elementary school (among many) is the PTO family nights that happen four times a year. Simply put, dinner in the cafeteria, activities for kids of all ages, educational opportunities (sometimes they skype with astronauts in Houston), and a program (kids singing.)
I was anchored to the PTO booth trying to churn up membership - so couldn't take the kids around. This is when Jack was sick with that weird virus - so Deonne was home tending to him. Thankfully Aunt Mary and Uncle Harry saved the day - and took Anna and James around to enjoy all of the fun things.
