May News

The most exciting event that occurred in May was Ezra and Crystal’s (Aunt Anna’s daughter) graduation from Penn View Bible Institute.

Ezra was one of the two valedictorians in his class. He gave an excellent speech!
Presentation of the roses to his Mom (and sisters!)
It was so great to 31 of the cousins together for the special event!

We rented a pavilion near Penn View to have a graduation party/picnic.
Ezra was delighted to have his photography friend, James Staddon (on the far left) come all the way from West Virginia!
Nathaniel was in charge of the grilling and did a great job!
The three roses from the graduation and some daisies Pearl picked on her way home from work.
With all the extra hands around for the weekend, we recruited all the cousins to help us pack 200 Lifeline Gift boxes. It was a lot of work, but fun to do it together! I got watch by camera while they did all that.
We packed the gift boxes into banana boxes and then loaded them up into the van!
Our friends, the Burkholders, kindly allowed us to store them all in one of their insulated sheds until they get shipped.
