Newest Addition

We went to the Chuck Wagon Cookout at the Rill's farm and brought home a souvenir. We named her Hayley because one of the girls found her in the hay. She had her bath and her eyes are clearing up. She seems pretty friendly around us. Josie's not too sure about her yet. We'll see how that goes.

Today was Katie's Farewell to Cranberry Station. Her theme was "Reach for the moon and even if you miss, you'll still land among the stars!" I made the silver moon and stars hanging over the stage.

Camping with the Cub Scouts

Justin's Pack had a camping weekend at Rocky Gap State Park. I have not camped in a tent since 1994, but of course it was for Justin, so we went. The first picture is where we set up our tent. Our tent is the one with the yellow, in the middle. We left Friday after school. The next picture is from our hike on Saturday. The Webelos needed to go on a 3.5 mile hike. We hiked around the entire lake in 95 degree weather. We ended up walking 5 miles in 3 hours. Those boys were troopers! The third picture is a view from our hike looking over the lake.

We had a monthly Pack meeting on Saturday night. Justin earned his Bear patch. As a bear, he got to put on a bear arm and scratch a log and roar like a bear. Now he will move on to earning his Webelos patch. Way to go Justin!

We ALL had such a wonderful time despite the heat that we're excited to go again!

5th Grade Picnic

Today was Katie's 5th Grade Picnic. They went to Piney Run Park. Joe and I went and had a great time. The weather was just perfect. Here they were getting their picture taken as a class.
They had scheduled game time. The first one was water balloon toss. The first picture was taken after the first round of tossing. Believe it or not, they managed to pick up all those balloon pieces!
Then they had a tug-of-war contest.

They also had a rock climbing wall. Joe had to give it a try.
And of course, the highlight of my day (NOT) this beautiful snake!
She has a farewell on Monday, June 9th. June 10th is her last day of school. I can't believe she'll no longer be in elementary school. Why do they grow up so quickly?
