This past weekend we had a Circle Party. It started at 3pm with a lawn party, which we try to have once or twice a year. We play lawn games (croquet, corn hole, badminton, bocce, frisbee golf, table suffleboard, and whatever other games people bring). This year we set things up in the usual place - west side of the common house in the big lawn.... but it was HOT! So we migrated to the central circle on the east side in the shade of our 100-year-old oak tree. Perfect! After the lawn games, we had a visioning session for how to make this central circle beautiful and inviting. We had LOTS of creative ideas. After the visioning session we had more circles..... in the form of a pizza party!
