We drove down to Tennessee for the papa fest after picking up the kids in Indiana. Our friends from the Simple Way and Camden House and a bunch of others came together to organize this weekend long festival called Papa Fest.

Papa stands for people against poverty and apathy. There were about 500 folks from all over. We stayed at Shanes parents farm, literally on the cow pasture. My kids thought it was fun hopping over the cow patties. It was hot and humid, but we swam in the lake to cool off. We had small group meetings where different topics were discussed. I went to a talk on raising children in community, one on sexuality and a workshop on sewing. Chris went to some great talks as well.

The best part of the weekend was just hanging out with people we hadn't seen in a long time. Billy and Maria and the whole communality crew camped near us and we ate meals together. It is such a beautiful place to be, and being able to be there with so many good people, made it even better!!

We even had jam out sessions every night. Psalters were great and so was Trace Bundy. I have never seen anyone play guitar like this dude!!

Thanks to Brian Lewis for the amazing photos!!
