Family and Consumer Science Class: Senior Saints Thanksgiving Luncheon 2016

Again this school year, I have had the delightful privilege
 of teaching the high school girls of our little homeschool assistance program 
a Family and Consumer Science Class.
Last year, we focused on Foods 1, and Beginning Sewing and Crafts.
After talking over their interests at the end of the year last school year,
the girls decided that they wanted the advanced versions 
of each class this year.
So this fall we're learning Textiles and Clothing Construction, 
and after Christmas we'll explore Foods 2!

We were once again asked to prepare and host a Thanksgiving Luncheon
for the senior citizens of the church,
and what fun it was to pull it all together.

We had a slightly smaller crew than last year, 
but these girls worked so hard
and used their creativity to make this a beautiful event!

The girls did all the set-up and decorations.
It turned out so lovely!

On the morning of this event,
they were very focused on working as a team
and making each of their guests feel welcome and cared for.

What a blessing Miss Amanda was to us this year in working
with our girls, preparing so many of the dishes,
and keeping things organized in the kitchen!!


"Be hospitable to one another without complaint.
As each one has received a special gift, employ it 
in serving one another as good stewards
of the manifold grace of God."  1 Peter 4:9, 10

What a blessing to watch these girls grow as we guide them along,
and learn skills in hospitality and gracious food service!

"Honor widows who are widows indeed."  1 Timothy 5:3
