Remember the Farm-ly Reunion a couple of years ago?
We just got home from another Meyer Reunion.
This year's theme??? MRU. Meyer Reunion University. Hosted by my uncle, who is the president of Highland Community College in Highland, KS.
Let's just say my family likes themes. Like really likes them.
I told my Mom how hilarious I thought it was that they put so. much. work. into planning a themed out reunion just so they can laugh at themselves.
And boy did they laugh.
But truthfully, I think its funny too. And I laugh at all (or most) of their jokes.
Here is who was enrolled. The reunion was for my Mom's siblings and their kids/grandkids. About 1/3 of my cousins were there, so if they had all been there, you can imagine the family size.
There were "classes", ranging from English to Home Ec. to Geography, to Art, etc.
Some were not-so-serious...
Others we actually learned things in...
like how to make baby blankets like my Grandma made.
or how to grind wheat
|and make it into a pancake mix.|
Science class was a hit with all ages...(picture grown adults running around trying to catch butterflies for their kids' nature hunt.)
and so was art.
Malia got an award for being the first to get her art assignment in!
Malia? Into crafts? Shocker.
There was also lots of Recess time at this school.
The school nurse was needed a few times.
We played hard.
I didn't get photos of everything, but was also had a field trip with a sack lunch, a graduation ceremony complete with graduation caps (see top photo), keynote speakers, and performances, and a church service in an old abandoned church building where apparently George Washington Carver attended. My aunt found a recording of my Grandpa who has passed away sharing thoughts about a passage of Scripture and played it for the "sermon" during the service. Talk about a tearful room. I didn't know that was going to happen.
Thanks Mom and family for making the time special!
