A change of decorations is in order…

PHRC House and Quidditch Cup champions!!!!!!

Last December, Slytherin beat Ravenclaw to win the House Cup by three points.

Three fucking points.

Ravenclaws throughout the Tower took that… not particularly well.

Then, Bill’s wife decided to rub salt in the wound. She hung a Slytherin banner right where Bill couldn’t miss it. (The dangers of multi-house families!)

Bill, of course, showed this to the Tower, and a battle cry was born.

Well, Friday, it was decided that a change of decorations was in order.

Not going to lie - I cried when I watched the awarding of the House Cup. Then I cried harder when Bill posted the video of him changing the banner.

We worked so hard for this… I can’t put into words how much we pulled together to do this.

People need medals? OK. Let’s give them money for medals!

We need to win Quidditch? OK. Let’s build a Ravenwall and ensure that nobody can come in 1st through 4th!

Kids need school supplies? OK. BUY! ALL! THE! THINGS!

More people need medals? OK. The House Ghosts are out in full force!

Moms need diapers? OK. BUY! ALL! THE! DIAPERS!

We need to run miles? OK. Let’s run ONE MILLION MILES!

I don’t think they’ve published the stats from this year, because I can’t find them, but we’re talking thousands of diapers. Thousands of pencils, colored pencils, highlighters. Over a million miles tracked in the Charity Miles app.

And that’s just Ravenclaw…
