Thanksgiving at My House
That seemed a little weird at first, but we noticed that the students (my two, my brother's two, and two international students who'd never had an American Thanksgiving dinner) from three colleges were having an animated conversation about things students talk about. This was such a contrast with all those years that the young people barely spoke while eating with older relatives. So their parents and grandma listened in the background and found it lovely. Not only are our children grown up, but they've become interesting, friendly, and engaging people.
When we cleared away most of the dishes and brought out dessert, all ten moved to the main table. A good time was had by all.
