Ronald McDonald House

What a FANTASTIC and awesome evening Tuesday night was!!! The moms in Tyler's class all got together and organized making dinner for the families at the Ronald McDonald House. It was a LOT of work, but totally and completely worth it all. If you are part of any sort of group, I would totally encourage you to organize a trip there. The people you meet there will change your life. The families are so thankful for what you are doing, so willing to talk and tell anyone who will listen their story, and they are so kind, even in the face of such tragedy.

We did a taco/nacho bar, and it was super easy to make a sign up sheet to tell people what to bring. Everyone was very generous with their donations, and I think the food ended up tasting pretty yummy if I do say so myself. I mean, you really CANNOT beat nacho cheese sauce from a can. You might think you make a better cheese sauce, but if you went to Xavier and grew up eating bagels with nacho cheese twice a day, you know nacho cheese from a can is the best.

If you would like any help organizing your own dinner, or have any questions, don't hesitate to ask, it is my new favorite way to spend an evening.
