Our Family Weekend is normally in June, but this year we adjusted the schedule a little and had it in May. Cheryl's son, Josh, graduated from high school on May 16. The entire family traveled to Ohio to attend the graduation on Friday evening. Gene was the main speaker.
Here are the six graduates with their teacher, Mr. Lapp.
Josh with his diploma and proud parents.
Would a graduation be complete without a cake?
After the party was over, we all went to a cabin a half hour away at Cambridge, Ohio, for the rest of the weekend.
In my book, this is not a cabin but a log house in the woods. It was spacious enough to accommodate all of our tribe even when it rained Saturday afternoon. The kitchen was fully stocked and even had a dishwasher.
There was a large living room with a fireplace (which we did not use).
We enjoyed each others company on Saturday and a variety of activities which ranged from quiet ones like a 500-piece puzzle to fishing, skateboarding, etc., depending on age and interests.
And, of course, chewing the fat.
We also took family pictures on Saturday morning. We took each family separately this time and will make a collage which will follow later.
The weekend passed all too quickly. After attending church Sunday morning and having a spaghetti lunch, it was time to pack up and make the long drive back home. It was a good weekend.
