Saturday evening we went to the Thomas A. Edison High School auction at the Governor Hotel. It was pretty swish, and we felt pretty poor! Just to get in and buy a raffle ticket, some raffle beads, and two glasses of wine set us back over $200, and everything we bid on got too expensive for our wallets. I think most of the people spending a lot of the money were those who do not currently have students there. All for a good cause, though. Each family had to procure items, and Mike had arranged for children's authors to donate signed copies of their books:

with our dear friends Lynn and Jolie!
Then last evening, Kieran and I went to "Wicked." He's been waiting for that night for nearly four years (since he learned of the play's existence)...and especially since we gave him the tickets for Christmas. He absolutely LOVED the show--he kept leaning over and asking me to pinch him!

I think this is my new favorite photo of my middle child.
