Girls Camp

 I was invited to participate in Young Women's Girls Camp.
The boys were cared for by a friend.
They got to play in the sprinklers.

They even had their own waterslide.
They played all day.

Hurricane got to hold their baby.
He wants to practice just in case.
We are not announcing anything.
He was excited to hold a baby.

Hurricane has been planning a birthday party for about 6 months.
He has written many invitations himself.

I surprised him by letting him pick some friends
to get ice cream at Dairy Queen.

They were happy to come.
One of the boys lost his tooth
while we were there.

Gaslight - Robin Hood

We surprised Hurricane by taking him to a show.
During the show, they announce birthdays, anniversaries, and military.
Hurricane stood on the chair and waved.
We laughed and had fun!


You've had a birthday!

We want to sing to you today!
One year older and wiser too!

Happy Birthday to YOU!
He asked for chocolate cake for his birthday.

Underfoot went to Cub Day Camp.
Sweetheart went with Underfoot for the day.

We woke up in the morning,
and Hurricane FINALLY got to open his present.
Underfoot bought with his own money a present.
Hurricane was thrilled.

The night before Sweetheart and I blew up balloons.
We put them in the room for him to wake up to in the morning.

Sweetheart harvested a handful of blackberries.
We planted a stick a few days after Hurricane was born.
Sweetheart picks a handful every day.
He takes a lot of joy in this part of our yard.

A Loving Boy

 "God cares a lot more about who we are and who we are becoming than about who we once were."
~Dale G. Renlund

 Underfoot picked this flower for me. 
I love pansies. 
They are hardy and stick to it.
What a loving boy to bring Mom a flower!

I needed to run errands.
Underfoot went with me.
He decided to make it into a date
and took me to frozen yogurt.
We had a lot of fun together.

Since Underfoot missed the last day of school, 
his friend, Mr. J., took Underfoot's shirt and had the class sign it.
Underfoot was planning on doing this but couldn't
because of the school's 24 hour symptom free policy.
