More about the Boys!

hmmhmm... did you know you have a frog on your head? Too cute, T's friend

This is the neighborhood boy passion. Trev and his buds opening up their reptile show. They went around the neighborhood selling tickets to the show, I'm sure they gave some freebies, sneak peaks. They had a snake, frog, and a couple of hermit crabs. I about died when they came to my door with the critters. Boys are so fun, especially if you like bugs! When Trevor asked to borrow my camera, I didn't think he was taking it outside with his friends, at least he got some good pics (first two)

Look at what he's doing now. They just don't stay young long. N & J think it's great having someone else to divvy up the mowing and they all like the fact they don't have to push it. The girls enjoy getting rides from their brothers.

Josh graduating from 8th grade, yae! I know, it's just 8th grade, but... this school only goes to 8th grade so it's a big deal, their last time together. They had the whole ceremony diploma thing, slide show, refreshments. It was nice, until all the tears came mainly from the boys. Josh said he tried to cry like his buddies were, to get a bunch of hugs from the girls, just couldn't- lol. Good kid with good friends! just a little emotional It's been a great school and a great year for him, even with some ups and downs, keep up the good work J.

Trevor at Camp Tracy. He was looking forward to this all month, his first overnighter now that he's a boy scout. I joined him the first day, it was 6 years ago when I first came up here with Nick, then Josh, great memories. It was fun for the boys and so beautiful being in the mountains, and glad it didn't rain. They shot rifles, compound bows, reviewed first aid, flag etiquette, sharpening tools, etc. What boy wouldn't love that? The next day they went swimming, canoeing, hiking... They had a ball. It was great spending time with Trevor and his troop. Who knew I would win my rifle merit badge (five bullets within the size of a quarter, only one who did it), hee, hee. Don't mess with me. Trevor was proud :).

Trevor earned his Arrow of Light tonight, the highest award in Cub Scouts, and his religious knot, Yahoo! He has had such great scout leaders and learned tons. We've worked on it at home and I'm proud of my last boy and his motivation. I'm very thankful for wonderful leaders that do so much for these boys!

I'm thoroughly enjoying the boys play, Broadway Kidz. As much as they like sports, they love acting, and they both have great stage presence in a different way. I purposely didn't watch much of the rehearsals so I could be surprised- and I loved it! It has funny parts (the funniest scene making fun of Twilight :), touching scenes, patriotic and cute scenes... Alot of music and dancing. It covers the entire calender year celebrating each holiday, even the Chinese New Year. Nick played his guitar in the fiesta scene, Cinco de Mayo. Awesome acting boys!
Thanks G & G for coming and enjoying with us.

Happy to see each other again, apparently :).

"G man" is in the play too, great little actor. It was funny each time he came on stage. We were on the front row and you'd think he was performing just for Sophie and Sage, he stared at them with his cute smile as he was performing. So sweet.

Let's hear it for the boys, love 'em!

Ok, I would die if ANYONE came to my house with a snake= I would fear that It would be left at my house to deal with... Boys are funny how they automatically take these creatures in.. Looks like some fun events have taken place in your household- kudos to the boys and the girls for graduating from kindergarten...
