Background: I have three siblings and between the 4 of us, there are 26 children. That means there are 26 cousins!
26 cousins + together in one place = Great times!!
Well, back to my reason for posting this - - Sam, the oldest cousin (17), is graduating this year. He is my older brother's son and they live in Idaho. We all wanted to be there for the first of many graduations to come.
So... that is where we all headed!
I might also mention that all 26 cousins are home-schooled.
Sam and two other home-school graduates put on a Music Recital for friends and family. The families of the graduates (with help from friends) provided a fabulous buffet dinner. Tons of socializing and then the graduates blessed all of us with their talent.
This is my older brother, Paul. He welcomed everyone and introduced the graduates.
This is my nephew, Sam. Let me just say, he is AMAZING at the piano. (almost as good as his Aunt Ashley -hee hee) We are so proud of him.
