Imagine all that is modeled during this creative mentoring activity.
Last Saturday Taya and I hosted our third annual dinner for her family. We spent a few hours at my house preparing food, and then served a total of 8 guests in my church basement. Each year she chooses a theme, and this year, she wanted to do everything “old-fashioned”. So we found some old looking jackets and hats and pearl necklaces to wear. We decorated the table with candles, old china dishes and a beautiful decorative tablecloth. For the menu we decided to bake bread from scratch to serve with pot roast and potatoes and carrots and a broccoli casserole. Watching the yeast bread rise was a new experience for Taya (and for me too as it overflowed the pan I had placed it in!) For dessert we served ice cream with a variety of toppings. After dinner we decided to play a game, since that was a more common entertainment before TV existed. So we all enjoyed a game of Guesstures, which is a variation of charades.
Some comments we heard were:
“You look like Grandma!” (to Taya from her sister).
“This is beautiful. I haven’t sat down at a table for a meal for a long time.” (from Taya’s cousin)
“Wow this is so intimate with the candles.” (from Taya’s mom)
At the end of the evening, I received a big hug from Taya along with lots of thanks from her family. Can’t wait to see what new ideas she comes up with next year!
