Deployment Dinners Survey
**I would like to share your story, and our dinner story on my blog including pictures, if you do not want to be featured on the blog please let me know, but still fill out the form! I will not share your last name, or the children’s real names and ages on the blog. Thanks!!**
Here is how I envision this project. One Saturday a week I will invite a family into my home for dinner. I would love for you and your family to join me and my girls in the late afternoon; around 3:30 or so. The kids can play games, or do a craft or activity while we visit and get dinner prepped. I am happy and content to do all the cooking but I really would like to share what I know with you so be prepared to help me in whatever capacity you feel most comfortable. I do not expect, nor do I want you to feel obligated to bring ANYTHING!! Just bring yourself, your kids, your appetite and an open mind. I will plan to serve dinner, family style between 5:30 and 6:30 pm.
Is there a Saturday that you already know you cannot attend a Deployment dinner? I would like to start a calendar about a month out.
