Out and About

Last night I attended the third in our series of "Dinners for Eight." We take turns hosting and share pot luck dinners with people from church. It's a great way to get better acquainted. My contribution (other than scintillating conversation) was the trifle sitting in the middle of the table. Host Todd Johnson is sitting next to the foreign exchange student the Johnson family has been hosting this year.
Here's the other end of the table with hostess Laura Johnson in the gray sweater. Next month we will dine at the Tummons' house -- the couple sitting to Laura's left. Quilting connections and dinners for eight comprise most of my social life other than kid-centric activities.

Kid-centric activities take center stage for the balance of the school year. Logan's focus is speech and debate tournaments while Ben is kept busy with Winter Drum Line. Today, Logan is time-keeping at a speech tournament at the high school. These tournaments are a big deal in this part of the world. The school parking lot is filled with school buses from all over the state and hundreds of kids participate in this two-day event which runs till nine o'clock tonight.

Ben's Winter Drum Line is an extra-curricular activity that practices two evenings a week and one Saturday a month. Today is their first in a series of competitions that go through April.
