We went camping this weekend with our good friends Clark, Stephanie, Melissa, Katie, Greg, Jenifer, Mason & Noah and had so much fun. Our campsite was perfect - not too many people, quiet and shady. There was a nice loop for the kids to ride their bikes and scooters on so they were busy with that or playing in the dirt and finding caterpillars. We were next to the river so we spent the afternoons playing in the water and enjoying the sun. This is our tradition to go every year and we are already planning next years camp out. We would like to thank our friends for the wonderful and enjoyable time.

Camping - Part Two - Playing In The River

We spent a lot of time enjoying the river while we were camping. The kids had hours of fun playing in the water and digging in the sand. The weather was wonderful and the water was not too cold.

An Hour At The Coast

On our way home from camping, we decided to head for the coast to walk on the beach and have some lunch. We were not able to stay long because we had all of our stuff in the back of the truck and we were anxious to head home! The time we did spend was fun, and even though it was windy, it was not too cold. The kids are anxious to come back.

I, Caleb, Promise To Do My Best . . .

Tonight was Caleb's pack meeting and he earned his Wolf Badge. Caleb was very excited to work on all of his Cub Scout Achievements so it did not take him very long to earn his badge. Hopefully his enthusiasm will not wear off in years to come. Here are some pictures of tonight's event.
We are very proud of you Caleb!!

Drinking milk out of the carton with a straw is funny one time - but don't do it again!!!!

Well summer vacation is finally here for Lindsay and Caleb. They are so excited that school is done for awhile. Can't believe that Lindsay is going to be in 5th grade next school year and Caleb into 3rd. Here are a few pictures of their last day of school.

Happy 14th Birthday Zeke!

This month is such a special one
it's birthday time for you,
We'd really like to celebrate
this happy day with you,
A can of cat food and a toy
is what we bought for you,
Let's sing a song that we all know,
Meow, meow, meow, meow to you!

Self Manager Bowling Party

Lindsay went bowling on Thursday with other Self Managers from school. A Self Manager is someone who is meeting their reading goal, turning in their homework, doing well on their spelling tests and one who is being respectful. There are a few special privileges in school for Self Managers (like longer recess for example). This is for kids in grades 3 - 5 and is earned each grading period. To attend the bowling party, you have to be a self manager all year. I think this is the last field trip for the year!!

Accelerated Reading Swimming Party

Lindsay and Caleb attended a swimming party with other kids from thier school on Wednesday. Kids who met their reading goal each grading period were able to attend. Here are a few pictures that actually turned out. Most of them were too dark!

The End Of The Oregon Trail Field Trip

Lindsay's fourth grade class went on a field trip to The End Of The Oregon Trail Museum. They have been learning about pioneers for quite awhile now and Lindsay even had a chance to do a report on the Mormon pioneers. I personally thought, being a chaperon and not knowing what to expect, that this trip was going to be really, really boring. But to my surprise, I really enjoyed it and the kids really liked it as well. It was very informative and entertaining. The presentation was wonderful and the movie was interesting. The hands on learning center was fun for the kids too. I am actually anxious to go back when Caleb's class is able to go in 2 years.

A.C. Gilbert's Discovery Village Field Trip

Caleb's second grade class went on a field trip to the A.C. Gilbert's Discovery Village, a interactive, hands on museum. This was a fun time for him and his class. The highlights for Caleb was the bubble room, the craft room, the train room, theater room and the outdoor play structure. Here are a few pictures. I should have taken more.
