A Fun Family Day

As family spreads out so far these days, I have a first cousin who lives in Indiana whom I haven’t seen for 25 years. A little nervous but mostly excited we headed to Knightstown Indiana to attend his church this morning, he’s a pastor, and to have lunch with his family after service. I appreciated the message straight out of the gospel of Luke also I enjoyed watching Michael in his element. The congregation was very welcoming, Michael must have warned them that we were coming because they were all on their best behavior ;0).

Lunch was a delicious homey meal of turkey, mashed potatoes, and green bean casserole with zucchini chocolate cake and or strawberry rhubarb pie. We were in heaven. We have quite a handful of kids between the two families, and I think we have all the names straight. The kids were all the right ages with Caleb getting along well with Cora and Olivia. Hannah and Naomi were like twins, Josiah and Eve ran around enjoying the toys and the excitement going on around them. We adults talked about all kinds of things catching up on the last 25 years. As we talked we eventually made our way to the garden. It turns out that Michael has quite the green thumb but it must be a whole family project as they grow so much of the vegetables that they eat. We did a few taste tests, I can’t resist fresh produce, it turns out that Serrano peppers are not nearly as hot as Tabasco peppers. Michael’s wife Kristen is in the medical field as well and is a certified lactation consultant so we had a lot in common as well. Catherine (Michael’s mom) came over too. She was friendly and we really enjoyed our conversation with her as well.
We were reluctant to leave but it was getting late and we had a long drive ahead of us to get back to our apartment in Neenah so we said our goodbyes.

Goodbye Knightstown.
