Blue and Gold

Tonight is the Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet. I'm a little nervous about it because I'm in charge (with another lady) and I'm just hoping everything goes alright. I think that I am ready but I'm almost more nervous about the regular scout meeting award stuff. For some reason I think I may have forgotten some of what I will need. It's that nagging feeling in the back of your head that drives you crazy that I just can't shake. Oh well, worst comes to worst I'll fix my mistake for the next month's pack meeting.

I got another preschooler yesterday that is going to be with me for the remainder of the year. I'm excited to have a full class again. He seems like he will be a good addition to the class. I'm sure we'll have a good time and get along just fine.

I have to go and get some more stuff done, but I'm taking my camera tonight so maybe I'll have some good pictures of Blue and Gold to share with you all.

Alex's vault

This might be too small to see. But Darrel took some cool pictures of the kids vaulting at the last meet and I put Alex's all together so you could see kind of a time lapse photography thing of his vault. I hope you can see. If you want to see it bigger, just click the picture below and it will show it to you real size (it does make it a little blurrier.)

I took this picture of my boys in Missy's backyard. I thought that it really showed off their personalities. We had a wonderful time with Missy and her family. We went to the Jelly Belly Factory, the San Fransisco Exploratorium, and Pier 39. I'll keep posting so keep watching.

Missy's boys

We went to Lafayette this last weekend to see Missy and her family. I took some way cute pictures of her boys that I thought I would share. Aren't these boys just so cute?!! I'm going to update a little more later with some pictures of the Jelly Belly factory and the exploratorium so stay tuned....

A Fun Weekend

I had a great weekend. Anjeanette (a friend from Idaho) came down to visit and we just had a blast. We saw a show (V - the ultimate variety show) and we people watched the masses of people that were on the Las Vegas Strip this past weekend. Holy Cow, there were a lot of people. We were even driving down the strip at one point and saw some plain clothes cops tackeling some guys and putting them in cuffs. It was wild. I think it might take Anjeanette some time to recover from all the excitement.

This next weekend I am going to Oakland to see Missy (my sister) and her family. I haven't seen them since before they left for England, so it's been awhile. I am looking forward to a fun weekend with them. Alex also has a meet (which is the main reason we are headed to Oakland). Joy was going to go with me but Caitlin is having a hard time with her little ears and Joy has scheduled surgery for Thursday so Caitlin can get tubes and maybe get some relief. We will keep them in our prayers. So, since I lost half my traveling companions, it will just be me and the boys. Darrel will join us on Friday and help me drive home on Sunday. I'm glad that I will have some help on one of the legs.

I am planning on taking a lot of pictures at this meet and while I am at Missy's house so look for some great pictures after the weekend. Talk soon!

the photo shoot

Some photos of our photo shoot. I played around with these in Photoshop so take them as they are. I hope you like them.

This one is interesting. I need to still fix it, but I thought I would post it and see what you all think.

Elise is here!!

My sister, Elise is here to visit. This is her oh so cute little daughter with the red hair. We're going to have so much fun while she is here. I'm excited to have her visiting for awhile. I have to go now, but I'll update again soon.

playing doctor

Daniel and Zachary are right now playing doctor in the preschool while I am working on the computer. I just couldn't resist taking some pictures. Are these not just the cutest things you ever saw? They were so proud of themselves, taking temperatures, giving shots, etc. They are so fun to watch and they just crack me up. Just thought you'd get a kick out of it too. Enjoy!!

Johnathan's basketball Saturday

The pictures are all different, but enjoy.
Johnathan had a basketball game on Saturday and so Darrel took our new lens and took some shots of him on the court. He did great in the basketball game. The next picture is him standing with his team; the third is Kenneth (his cousin) getting ready to pass him the ball (the pass was good by the way). The last picture is of Johnathan climbing the rock wall at the rec center. He did a great job and had a wonderful time during both his game and the climb. Way to go Johnathan!!
