Ideas and apology

Let me just start by saying that I am the WORST blogger in the blog-world.  I know that there are several of you out there who really do want to know what is going on in our ministry especially and rely on this for your information.  So let me apologize for being so terrible at keeping this up-to-date.  You can always check Nicole's Blog for some Great stuff about what we do - like this post she did today on Why we do what we do.  It speaks my heart and I am going to print it up to help ME remember why I am here:)

So for today's post I thought I would ask you all for ideas...

Each weekend there is a strong possibility that we will be having a small group of middle-school age boys spend the night at our house (anywhere from 3-7).  It has been overwhelming in the past, but I really think that it is because I have not been prepared.  I have learned that they don't care where they sleep... on the floor, on the pull out couch, in the bunk beds - with my boys:) So I have stopped worrying about "guest space" for this crowd.  I am trying to really be more prepared in the food and drink category.  My goal is to go each Friday to Sam's or Wal-mart and just stock-up on some really easy, yet filling, (we are talking about BOYS!) foods to have on hand.  We have spent way too much money on pizza and McDonalds.  Cooking is NOT my strength.  So I am asking for ideas!  Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack ideas.  Hurry up!  IT"S FRIDAY!!!
