Well, we survived the storm. As far as Pacific Northwest storms go, this one was big...but it was hardly as epic as we had been warned it would be. Our neighborhood lost a few trees, but that was it.
Anyway, my kids' were supposed to have their fundraising Jog-a-Thon last Friday but, thanks to the storm, it didn't happen. Instead, we had it today and I ended up being a part of it all.day.long. It was great fun, but, man!, am I tired.
It was a Superhero-themed run and, as much as my kids may have wanted to run in full regalia, I convinced them to just wear capes.

Another exciting thing that happened this week is that we were BOO-ed! I'd never heard of this, but we came home and found a basket full of goodies on our doorstep with directions to make 2 other baskets and pass them onto our neighbors. The kids and I stopped to buy supplies this afternoon and will be distributing our baskets this weekend!
