Porter - The entrepreneur

So Porter is SO determined to have his own business. Yesterday he made "S" out of paper clips and sat on the curb waiting and waiting.... He even made his own sign. It was HOT, but he wasn't about to leave without selling "S". And HE DID!!! He actually had people buy some!!! 7 to be exact!!! Nice people around here :)

Spring Break at the Phoenix ZOO!!!

Yesterday was the first day of Spring break and we went with grandma, Anna and some cousins to the zoo! It was a fun day and we saw all kinds of crazy things!

Down and Derby!!!

We had our Stake Pinewood Derby last Saturday. It was great!!! Of course, since I organized it... :) We had 143 kids in the stake race. It was a loooooong and busy day for me!! Micah had a great time!! His car took first place in all his races and later it won 2nd place overall for the Bear den and "Most Patriotic" car!!! Micah has his awards proudly hanging in his room!!

Summer 2008

Here are a few pics of our summer FUN! We did a lot this summer! It went by really fast! (some days not fast enough with the kids though...)

Scout Camp 2008

Jace is the YM president in our ward. He had his scout camp from July 7-12th. He had a great time, especially doing wilderness survival. They went to Knoll Lake, about 1 1/2 hrs. NE of Payson, AZ.

Wood Badge!

I had the amazing opportunity to go to Wood Badge, which is, for the non-scouters, a 2 three day weekends leadership training for scout leaders. It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. And it was a BLAST!!! I went April 17-19 and May 8-10, 2008.
