Today was Tristan's 13th birthday! It feels a little crazy to think that we have a teenager for a son. He really wanted to go paintballing for his birthday, so yesterday Cahl took him, Jasen, and 3 of his friends. They had so much fun! Then after, they went to lunch at Red Robin followed by Krispy Kreme. Then tonight he requested rootbeer floats instead of cake, but I also got him a cupcake for his candles.

Blue and Gold

Tonight was the annual Blue and Gold banquet for scouts. It was Mad Scientist themed, and the boys had so much fun doing simple science experiments, and dipping treats into the "toxic slime" fountain. Jasen also received his Citizen pin this month. He decided that he wants to earn every pin in his book, there is his Webelo pin, 20 activity pins, his Arrow of Light, and 2 special awards he wants to get. So I helped him lay out a plan that will get him everything he wants before his next birthday. So far he has been working really hard, and he should start racking up the pins at each pack meeting for the next few months!

The most exciting day has finally come... Brinley started dance class! She and I have both been waiting for this day for quite a while. I have a friend who teaches dance classes, and Brinley loves her. She goes to class once a week, and asks me every day how many more days until dance.
