Missionary Farewell

Today was a Missionary Farewell for one of my cousins, Justin. He's leaving in 2 weeks to go to San Jose, CA - Mandarin Speaking Mission! WOW! Can't wait to hear him speak Mandarin Chinese. That'll be cool. I'm sure he's going to do great! He spoke in Sacrament meeting and gave a wonderful talk, his sister, Jessica, also gave a fabulous talk. I'm so impressed with today's valiant youth!!

Anyway, today was the first time that most of my cousins have been together at the same time, so of course, it was a major photo-opp! I brought my camera and so did a couple of my cousins. We were able to find someone to graciously take our picture (instead of going to Sunday School). Ben had to work (the only Sunday he's covering for someone), my sister is sick, and 2 of my cousin's spouses weren't there, plus 2 kids. Actually looking at the pictures, I think one of Justin's sisters wasn't there. Where was she? I saw her at their house later, hmmm. Like I said, most of us were there!
Here are the Call Cousins
All the Big Call MEN (Justin is the tall one in the middle w/ glasses)
All the Lovely Call Girls + Justin
It was good to see so many of my cousins! And Rob & Ruth were very generous to have everyone at their house to spend time together & eat tons of food!
