I was in charge of the lunch.
We had bangers and mash (our version was little smokies and mashed potatoes) with toasted cheese bread (Dicken's favorite food) and a fruit punch based on Mr. Micawber's punch he always drank with lemons in the book. We also had grapes and fruit trifle for dessert. I found an awesome mother to do the decorations. She was amazing!
Some of the kids dressed up for the event. It turned out well, but I came home and took a nap.
Kenzie is in Mexico with her school on a humanitarian project, just like Austin did a few years ago. She is at an LDS private school outside of Mexico City. She has been making quilts, teaching English, painting parking lots, and tomorrow she works in a men's homeless shelter. She has a roommate from her school and 4 from the Mexican school. I have not heard from her, but the principle mails out a daily email that includes pictures. She looks happy and warm. We are freezing here, so anywhere with sun and blue sky (we are stuck in an awful inversion and haven't seen the sky or mountains for weeks) has to be heaven..... I am glad she is having this opportunity. I hope she is really doing as well as the pictures show her. I miss her. She is a sweet girl.

McKenzie and her friend from our school begin to paint the curbs and the parking stall lines.....by hand.
Here she is making blankets with one of her new Mexican friends.
She is so pretty and sweet. I miss her. What a good girl. I am so glad she is having this fantastic learning opportunity.
