Everyone is Growing Up.

Today I am sitting down to document some milestones.  Jacob has been hard at work for a few intense weeks at a commercial driving school and now has his license!  He is pretty stinkin' excited. 

Camille has been practicing with the track team and runs in her first track meet today.  She is running some distance races, she has the long legs for it!

Caleb has earned his Webelos and Arrow of Light and has his first activity as an eleven year old scout today, a five mile hike and compass course!  Wa-hoo! (I love scouting!)

March has been so stressful that I'm not sad to see it go.  Survived it. Yes.

Soccer is starting for Caleb, Ethan and Miriam and will run until June, so no rest for the weary. :)

The Last Few Weeks

We have not fallen off the face of the planet, just off the part of the planet's face which is the internet.  Here are some photos to fill you in on the last few weeks.
Ethan and Seth boasting some soap bubble beards.  These are a tradition at our house, made legendary when Caleb brought home a Level 2 note (one that must come home and be signed by parents for breaking school rules) which read: Caleb came out of the bathroom with a soap bubble beard.  It had the opposite effect than they hoped for, we laughed our heads off that this was a Level 2 offense.
This picture holds a soft spot for me.  Caleb having his first lesson in tying his own tie, from Dad and Jacob.  I love the uniform of the priesthood and my boys learning to wear it.

We had a fun visit from our good friends the Medleys.  A likely group--they played and played together.
Seth wore this cute leprachaun hat home from preschool.  Happy St. Patrick's day!  In other news, the winds of change are constant and we have, for many reasons, decided to bring Caleb and Ethan home to do their schooling here for a time.  Wish us luck in this new, exciting challenge.
