Two nights ago Meg and I went to Curriculum Night at Henry's school. It was wonderful. I finally got to meet his teacher and see his classroom. His teacher spoke for about 45 minutes and Meg and I looked around for pictures of Henry and artwork he had done. I'm so proud of the big kid he's become!

Hazel had a funny moment last night. She and Henry were fussing about a small spider they found in the house. I came over with a tissue to deal with it, but Hazel grabbed the tissue, said, "I do it myself" and killed the bug.

63 small dollars and thirty half dollars had one mint set half (2012D Chester Arthur).

6,440 quarters turned up seven silver Washingtons (7 x 1964), five Canadians, one Bermuda 25¢, Bahamas 25¢, five US nickels, one US dime and one arcade token. I found all of the silver quarters in one roll! That's the most silver quarters I've found in one time in years! Eleven is my one roll record ... this was close.

4,700 dimes produced four silver Rosies (1946D, 1960D, 1963D, 1964), eleven Canadians, one East Caribbean States 10¢ and one US penny.

2,480 nickels rounded up three War Times (1944P, 2 x 1945P), ten Canadians (4 Ni), two US dimes and one key date Jefferson, the 1939D.
