Friendship Stew

Today was our annual Friendship Stew at the kids' school where parents, grandparents, relatives and friends are invited to join the kids for stew that everyone contributed to (some bring potatoes, or carrots, or onions, or mixed veggies, or stew mix, etc.). The kids look forward to this luncheon every year and I think the parents do too.

Pastor Yohn prays a blessing over our meal. Not sure if some of you knew this but Yohn does chapel for the elementary school where the kids attend. So he is often asked to lead in prayer for school events because, in a way, he is their pastor, and being their pastor is something he loves!

One more year gone by. It's crazy how fast time flys.

What a great idea and special time. It is so awesome to see Yohn doing what he loves.

How fun!!! That is a creative idea to do.

Also, I saw your comment on Abigail's blog (on the Christmas tree post) and I completely agree with you! We are like your fam and the Kraft fam, all of our ornaments are different. I think that you are right about it not being personal enough when ornaments are the same color and the same type. :0)
