Blue and Gold Dinner

“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”  -Albert Einstein
Tony made the bridge for the bridging ceremony. Others helped, but Hubba said out of the corner of his eye he saw Tony undo and redo the knots and test it for safety.

Nick moved up a level in cub scouts….this coming up year will be his last.

Joe got some belt loops, he was super excited and I dug it!!

Like Christmas!

“There is not a sprig of grass that shoots uninteresting to me.” -Thomas Jefferson
It was a great spring day. I picked the boys up from school, and I needed to talk to a teacher briefly so it took a minute or two, then…I got in the car, no complaints, no anger…I thought to myself, I will reward their patience and manners with a roll down a grassy hill. I had forgotten that Nick bit it walking Beag last night and had a nasty road burn on his elbow, so I shared with him that he could roll with one arm up in the air….and he did. They rolled, hopped, skipped, ran, and walked up and down that grassy hill for about an hour. Joe was the judge, Harrison and Nick were the very agreeable competitors, who patted each other on the back and said, ” good job” at the bottom of the hill each time. Magical.
