Packing Day (Aug 5) was a very busy day. I went down with Jason to get the moving van. The van was really sluggish so he traded it for one that worked much better.

At 12:30 Kamary had her recital for vocal camp she attended this week. Each of the camp participants had solos and small group numbers in the recital.

We came home and packed some more until 3:00 PM when the vocal camp had their final performance, which included choirs and musical numbers from "Oliver" as a small production.

Meanwhile, members of the ward came to start loading the truck. this went on until late in the evening.

While they were loading we went to a wedding reception for Camille Jensen. Lauren had her final performance in "Puccini Trilogy"today. This made for a full day. When all was done we went to Angies to "clean the kitchen sink" (ice cream in a big dish shaped like a kitchen sink).

On June 13th we went to the John Pack reunion in Salt Lake. They always hold it in the Pack House in Pioneer State Park. Diane was happy to meet with them again after a long absence.
John Pack was in the first pioneer company to enter the Salt Lake valley. In fact, he was part of the exploring party and entered the valley before Brigham Young. For this he has his picture on the Pioneer Monument in Salt Lake.

I received a call as a Stake Technology Specialist (STS) for our stake. I wonder who will train me, since few people really understand the responsibility of an STS. I was able to get started right away.
We received a wedding announcement for Nicole Wheeler (Scott and Kim's daughter) in Sacramento, California. We decided it would be nice to reconnect with family so we decided to go. We will have a separate blog for our trip to California.
