Big Moldova Meeting Weekend

Last weekend was one of the busiest and most-planned-for weekends of our whole year... and yet I have essentially no good pictures to show from it!

Some of the preparations... during which I was channeling my mom
The board of directors for Moldova World Children's Fund all assembled here, arriving from Alabama, Florida, Washington, D.C., Georgia, and Hendersonville, for the big annual weekend of parties and meetings.  It was a lot of fun getting to see old friends, and meeting some new ones.

 Friday night everyone came over for dinner.  We squeezed all 14 of us around the table... although it did have to extend into the foyer.  Somehow that small group drank 5 bottles of Moldovan wine and 6 (non-Moldovan) beers throughout the evening.  And that was just the beginning of the fun!
After everyone left...

Saturday, after a very full day of meetings about all of the previous year's projects and all of the upcoming plans for new ones, the group again gathered.  This time we all met at Dan and Amy's house for a big reception that we had invited family and friends to.
Got a quick shot of the drink table...
there was also a large food table that
I did not remember to photograph
Very blurry picture of some of the people there
We loved getting to share our love for the Moldovan people with others, some who had been there and some who had not.  Now it's just sad that we don't get to see the board again until next year.

I should also mention some of the other activities that went on that weekend.  While Pete was off doing the big meeting all day Saturday, the kids and I were running to soccer games, reffing jobs, and the neighborhood festival -- and getting all the food ready for the party.  :)

It was a VERY full weekend!
