This evening, we went over to Dave and Jayne Walters' home for a version of a Passover dinner. There were five families there and Dave had prepared an outline to guide us through the various courses, from salad greens to unleavened bread to matzah soup and on to lamb and eggs and dessert. There were over twenty of us there.
Dave waxes theological . . .
Eric breaks bread . . .
Lance serves up some matzah ball soup . . . for most of us, it was the first time we had tasted this . . .
Surprisingly, there were a number of us who also had never had lamb. Dave explained that the lamb that was slaughtered and eaten by families in the early Passover dinners was actually raised in the home as a family pet, so when that lamb was killed, the family really did feel a sense of loss and sacrifice.
Afterwards, we all sat around and talked or watched the NCAA games.
Here are Phillip and Jordan with Becca Howard and Tianna Clark. Becca ran cross country with Jordan this fall and she's going with him to next month's Junior-Senior Banquet.
The evening ended with a large circle of girls (plus Jameson) doing Ring-around-the-Rosie for the benefit of Miss Melody . . .
