Lost Tooth

It was also a big day for Brinley, and she lost her first tooth with a little help from dad and some floss!

Driving Test

Today was a big day for Tristan- he went and took the driving portion of his test! He passed! So now he just needs to go down to the DMV and take the written test, and he'll be officially permitted to drive alone!

Tristan had to make a paper mache mask for school, so of course we all wanted to help!

National History Day

This year for National History Day, Jasen chose to do his report on Edmund Hillary- the first man to reach the top of Mount Everest. He and Cahl put together an awesome display, and although he scored very high marks with the judges, he did not place in the competition. It was still a great experience, and he received so many compliments on his display! I'm excited to see what or who he'll choose for next year.

Capital Tour

Tonight Cahl and Jasen's scout troop went on a tour of the Idaho Capital building. One of the other scout's grandpa is the Senate Majority Leader, so he was their personal tour guide and took them on an exclusive, after hours tour! I hear it was super awesome, and it made me a little jealous that I didn't get to go!

Celebration Park

We decided to go out and visit Celebration Park today. It was fun learning how to throw the atlatl's, and walking across the dam.

Today we went down by the river and just played for a bit. The weather has been really nice, so it was fun to get out and play.

Blue and Gold

Hunter had his Blue and Gold dinner tonight for Scouts, and it was great! The boys each made and decorated their own cakes, and Hunter's was awesome!

Today my very best friend had her first baby- a gorgeous little boy named Gunner Paul! He is amazing, and perfect in every way! I'm so happy and excited for her and her family! I can't wait to meet him!

This weekend was the annual Scout Klondike campout. There was a lot of snow this year, so it turned out much better than last year. The boys did a great job preparing this year, making troop flags and they even made a troop Yeti! Some of the boys used our massive 8 foot beach ball to make a cave big enough to stand up in. They all had a great time participating in all the events, and even won some cool troop prizes!

Cub Scout Carnival

Tonight Hunter's Scout Pack put on a carnival for their families. It was a ton of fun! They made and ran their own games, and had cotton candy and treats. They did an awesome job!
