I have a child who has graduated from high school.
And a third who has graduated from junior high.
Hopefully I will get to posting all about it tomorrow, but for now this is easier.
After graduation Max took off on his senior trip and the rest of us got the heck out of dodge up to the mountains with all the cousins.here) who is expecting in October. We're all so excited about that first "great" nephew on the way.
In past years Elle and I have taken time up there to take a whole slew of pictures as we've soaked in the beauty (here and here), but this year it rained most of the time and we were comfy in the cabin so we never even pulled out our cameras.
So bear with my iPhone pictures from this trip.
The first night all the adults gathered for dinner while the kids ate pizza back at the cabin.
Then we went back and played "Wits & Wagers " (like we did on New Years Eve...click on that name for more info.) with everyone.
These girls are 11 going on 18 I think...
This one is 3-Deep (which I explained a few years back in the middle of this post back here).
We toyed with the idea of trying "7-deep" kind of as a joke but look how cute these kids (and Bob) are:
We opted for that game you do at camp where you stand in a circle and everyone sits down.
Then Bob had an idea to have a battle of hide-and-seek, kids vs. adults.
First all the kids scattered and hid and we timed how fast the adults could find them.
This was my favorite hiding place by my sis-in-law Kara:
And those clever kids still beat us!
After all the game hoopla we had a little devotional led by James who assigned the older grandkids to tell about some "blessings" in their lives.
Fun to hear from Rob and Kathryn too.
These "fabulous five" did a couple musical numbers:
The girls had to end the day with a little mini dance party.
Dave had to leave a few hours early to get ready for our church "super activity" so Nana and Papa were nice enough to drive us home...
