  1. We began meeting again in person last May with some masking and distancing. Much of that is now going away. We have not had a single case of transmission at our church.
  2. Yes -- thanks for this. We don't use the word courtship per se, but I hope to help my children avoid the indiscriminate type of dating that I and my friends experienced in high school. At the time it was alternately fun and heartbreaking and didn't aid in my development. My parents were largely absent from my dating experiences. I find much of the "courtship" ideas creepy and for my own kids hope to strike a balance. I prefer the term intentional dating.
  3. That sounds stressful. I just spent a day altering a prom dress and Google was very helpful.
  4. I did a burrito bar last June. People who feel comfortable with that will come and eat. People who don't will either eat at home or not come.
  5. Well, I think that our graduation parties have been fun. We often have 150-200 people coming and we have food available all night. We do have a swimming pool, so that helps. We also set up volleyball, spike ball, corn hole, ladder ball and other outdoor games. Our kids would love a gaga pit, but so far we haven't done that. If you could find a way to rent or build a temporary one, that would be popular with the teens who hang around here. Right now, spike ball is the most popular game and they're not too expensive and you can set up several in a small space.
  6. We're considering buying a property that we can use as an Airbnb that could also be used as a vacation spot for our family. If you've done that, how has it worked for you? We live in the eastern part of the country, so it would be nice if it was within reasonable driving distance from us. Other than location, what kind of things should we be looking for?
  7. I watched the first episode of The Long Song. I liked it as well, and I may get around to watching more.
  8. I'm thankful she was found. Praying that she turns her life around.
  9. Praying for your niece -- and the whole family who is waiting to hear.
  10. So, what do you think? I'm looking at ordering a runner for my kitchen. The one that I have in there is from rugs.usa and I loved it, but it's not machine washable and it really needs to be!
  11. I love my Cutco knives. I've had mine for over 20 years now. I've sent them in to be sharpened a time or two and when I sent one in that had a broken tip, they sent me a brand new knife. Great customer service. This paring knife is $67 https://www.cutco.com/products/product.jsp?item=paring-knife And this one is $69 https://www.cutco.com/products/product.jsp?item=4-inch-paring-knife You could probably search for better deals on them though.
  12. I got tested a few weeks ago. I made an appointment on a Monday, got tested on Tuesday morning and received results on Friday morning. It was a drive-through facility and I waited about 15 minutes and did a self-test. They took my insurance information, but I didn't need to pay anything and it was advertised as 'free' testing.
  13. If you're part of a homeschool co-op, what is your co-op doing in response to COVID? Are you meeting? Do you have any restrictions?
  14. Thanks for the suggestions. We have a large age range, but the specific group that I'm hoping to make happy is the teen to young adult group. I'm not even sure where we're staying in the area, but we have transportation so we're willing to travel around.
