Well we made it through the week with all the family in town. It started with Grandma and Grandpa’s car breaking down in Parawon so they rented a car. Then Doug went to the hospital to have his kidney stone removed. Even among all these small little events, Tim had 6 of his 8 siblings together. Tracy and Jenny were the only two missing. We had so much fun. We went swimming. Visited temple square. Listened to the Mormon Tabernacle choir practice. Played games like Mancala and cover your assets. We celebrated papa John’s 70th birthday and Kari’s birthday. We also got to witness Lowen’s baptism. It was such an incredible experience with all the cousins. We also read from Henry Ballard’s journal and got a small glimpse of his life. It was very busy at our house. There were so many bodies and we always stayed up late. Now that everyone is gone I am a little sad. There is definitely not as much hype and excitement. It is a lot slower paced at the house. I am trying to transition back to normal life.
