And, of course, with as many excited kids and talking-at-once adults as we can cram into a small house. We ended up the evening with a surprise presentation by the little ones; a dance by three- and four-year-old Sofia and Sara, under a spotflashlight held more or less steadily by one of the first-grade boys. Piano, a last-minute insipration, by cousins, drum (kid variety) by an uncle. Sofia took no notice of the tempo; she dances to her own drumbeat.

I'm still laughing.
