July 30-Aug.5th we had a Larson Family Reunion. We stayed at a time share a little under 2 miles from our house. We had a very eventful week. Here were some of the hightlights: making flip flops, sewing slouchy bags, kickball with a beach ball in the cultural hall ( I like all the rhyming) designed t-shirts with cricut and bleach, made snow cones, made homemade donuts, scones, minute to win it games, paper air plane throwing, ROOK, Settlers, Celebrated Stevens b-day at the Sutherlands, boon doggle, cereal necklaces, bubbles, decorated sugar cookies, swimming swimming swimming, Larson duel in the Pool at Kino, homemade macaroon ice cream!, and we topped it off with Find Grandpa at the mall. (Kinsie and Stacie were the first to find him) The children had such a great time with all the cousins. If that sounds exhausting to you just reading it, We lived it, and loved every minute of it! It was so great to be able to see all of Ginger's siblings. All the cousins were there but 1 who was finishing summer at BYU. Aren't families great! We left Friday night, then Sat. morning, we packed up Kinsie and her stuff and headed over to Thatcher where she is enrolled for college. She went a week earlier than all her room mates, so she could start her job. She is having a BLAST! Classes started this week. They organized the ysa wards, and had a meet and greet. She is loving that. We can feel the empty spaces around here with out her. Of course, we are all trying to convert her bedroom, to our new favorite spot. The little boys have currently taken over with a table and their legos, and Hunter has moved a chair and music stand along with the guitars to practice everyday. I had grand plans of turning it into my sewing and scrapbook room. I guess we will see what happens.
On Aug. 7th, 2011 I was sustained and set apart as the R.S. President in my ward. (thus nothing happening with my sewing room yet :) ) I've been saying that when school started it would be the start of my new life (all the children in school after 20 years!) and it sure is, just not how I had planned. You know how Heavenly Father has a way of changing things for good though. So I will hopefully, get organized and familiar with everything soon, so I will be able to still quilt and do my fun things. I have great counselors and secretary!
