What's for Dinner Menu Plan

We had a rather crazy week in Southwest Missouri. It's not unusual for us to get a snow day late in February, but we actually had our first tornado day! A tornado hit Branson late Tuesday night and did some pretty serious damage to the main part of town where lots of businesses, theaters and hotels are located. None of the school buildings sustained damage, but they cancelled school on Wednesday due to power outages and roads being blocked by debris. It was pretty scary looking at the pictures of places we see all of the time, now severely damaged or destroyed. Luckily, there were very few injuries and no deaths associated with the storm. I did have a few students and teacher friends who lost their homes. Our community has really come together to help those in need.

I had a Family Reading Night scheduled for that Thursday, and we decided to go ahead with it, hoping that it would be a good way for our school family to come together after the storm. It ended up being a great event. I had over 660 people attend! My theme was a reading luau, and I had planned on serving hot dogs as our luau feast. This couldn't have been more perfect. One lady come up and said she was a single mom with three kids, and she had no power and no way to get dinner for her family. This was a blessing for her. It's amazing how little things can mean so much. Here is a picture slideshow from the event.



This week is filled with evening obligations, and it's my mom's last chemo treatment! Woo hoo! I've decided to do lots of grilling this week to keep our meals simple and easy.
