Arrow of Light

Oh boy do I love that face! Camdon just completed the cub scout program and has moved on to boy scouts. We are very proud of him & his hard work.
After 8+ yrs of cub scouts (from Jaron to Camdon) and pack meetings this was our last one and while they are always entertaining and full of fun for the whole family I must say that there were no tears. Is that bad?
They were learning about team work and cooperation which is the reason for the partner games. He really liked the human wheelbarrow relay.
with some of the the other boys in his pack.
The great excitement of the night was that he earned his Arrow of Light and we couldn't be more proud. Here he is presenting me with my pin for being his helper.
He got to cross the bridge which symbolizes him leaving the cub scout program and heading into the boy scout program. This is his new leader.
Grandpa & Grandma Whipple came for the event. Thanks for your support.
Here he is with his cub leaders. They were AweSoMe!!!
Way to go Camdon, keep up the good work!

HaPPy BirThdAy DaD

Wanted to wish my Dad a HaPPy BirThdAy!!! He is quiet & tends to keep to himself but he would be the first one to offer a listening ear or a helping hand if you needed it. I love him & am grateful for his unselfish acts of kindness that he offers so willingly.
We recently spent some time out in the mountains with him and I love this picture that I captured of him. To me it speaks volumes. Love ya Dad! Glad I got to spend some time with you today.

Camdon is "11"

My baby boy is growing up and I can't seem to do anything to stop it.
He requested to have 'breakfast in bed' and in my bed no less. Silly boy. He wanted scrambled eggs with bacon, toast & apple juice and that's exactly what he got.
Here he is with his new bike. He had to ride to school, of course.
Jaron giving his little brother a birthday hug.
Waiting to be seated.
He chose the Texas Roadhouse. One of our favorites.
He invited both sets of grandparents. Here he is with Grandma Turley.
and Grandma Whipple.
Pretty excited about his meal. He is such a poser and I love that about him.
and he got to sit on the bull while they gave a shout out for his birthday.
and he enjoyed his free dish of ice cream.
with Grandpa Turley.
and Grandpa Whipple.
Thanks for helping us to celebrate.
