Since Jon has taken a new job we won’t be going to New Hampshire this summer. We are planning the summer get-everyone together reunion ya’ll voted on at Thanksgiving for our (Flower Mound) house instead of Jon’s place. (We will be traveling to Lincoln this summer to see them, but since Sam has no college interests out there, I didn’t think everyone would want to try and come.)
Please vote on the weekend time period you think you would be able to attend the reunion (your best guess). We’re thinking of an extended weekend, come when you can:
July 4 (the 4th is a Friday this year)
July 24 Pioneer Day (the 24th is a TH)
August 8 Beijing Summer Olympics Opening Ceremonies
It is our year for Christmas this year, but all may not be able to make it and Jacob won’t be there, so the consensus if you remember at the beach was that those who wanted to come for Christmas would and we would try to make an opportunity for everyone to get together over the summer. You won’t have to do anything for the reunion. Grandpa and I will run a Granny camp for the little ones and there will be plenty of watermelon and ice cream.
Congratulations to Jon on his new job. He always wanted to be Chief, so I’m sure he likes that word in his title. Sam pointed out that I have a Vice-President and a Chief from my two oldest sons, but in case you didn’t know Seth brought home a cake from Hobby Lobby last night with his name and a co-workers inscribed in blue icing as “Stockmen of the Year,” so try to beat that! (They convinced the lady who runs the cake decorating class to make them that, even further proof of his talent and ambition.) We have a Vice, a Chief, an attorney, an engineer, a missionary, and a stockman. Pretty good. But only one of you has “of the year” behind your title and a cake to prove it.
