Here are a couple pictures from the graduation and party afterward. Congratulations, Arianna!
This cabin is in the area of Cambridge, Ohio, and was large enough to accommodate all of us. We had also been there the weekend Josh graduated. Arianna is the youngest in her family so this may never happen again.
There was a variety of activities for everyone on Saturday. The women and girls did a craft project.
The men and boys went fishing
and launched some rockets
and did some archery target shooting.
Some sat and visited or rested
while the little ones played their own games. Fortunately, we were blessed with lovely weather for all this outdoor activity.
The cherry on top of the day was sitting around the campfire in the evening for a hymn sing until it was getting too dark so see the print in the books.
We all went to Cheryl's church on Sunday morning and then back to the cabin for lunch. It happened to be Mothers Day and was made memorable by the fact that all my children were there with me at the same time. Cheryl got an ice cream cake for me which I was happy to share with everyone.
And, of course, I received the usual cards and flowers. I appreciated all of these things but the best part was simply being together on this day.
Church had lasted longer than usual so lunch was also late. As soon as we finished eating we started packing up to go home. It was 3:30 when we headed out and we made the five-hour drive without stopping once. Family weekend is over for this year but we have the memories to keep.
