For the fourth year in a row, the boys and I went up to church last night and helped make pumpkin pies for the Manna Soup Kitchen. About 20 teenagers were there to help. It gets a little crazy, and I'm sure a couple of the pies are missing ingredients--but hopefully not many.

It's so much fun to see all the kids so devoted to the cause. We gathered in a circle and said a little prayer and I realized despite the crappy economy and the other woes of the world, my family is really lucky, especially me--to have such wonderful sons. I was so proud of them last night--you have no idea.
