178

Today we finished off going through all the BYU interns for summer semester.  We had our married couples come today plus a couple from the ward that gets married on Friday.  That makes 178 people we have fed a meal to excluding our institute students that we take treats to every week.  We haven't counted them because it is not a meal but just a treat of some kind.   It has been fun to have so many great people in our home here.  We have kept track of how many we have fed around our table or at Thanksgiving around several tables at the Barlow.  We are up to 178 people.  There is something about breaking bread with a person that drops barriers and helps you understand those you work with.  Food is something that everyone needs. Food is essential in every culture and it cross cultural differences. Food builds friendships.

Washington has the most beautiful flowering trees. Here is a close up of the flower.

This is from a dirty bus window.  They are so beautiful.

  1. Crape Myrtle! They come in hundreds of colors and different heights. They flower all summer and sometimes into the fall. Some are small bushes and some huge trees. Some are very fragrant. In the fall/spring they are hacked way back and some call the pruning "crape murder" but they always shoot back out each spring. It's the Southeastern replacement for lilacs.
    They are planted every. where. in VA, NC, SC, GA, FL, etc

  2. That is awesome that you have fed so many people. I remember some older couples that fed us when I was a missionary and I will never forget them. They gave me a piece of home.
