Andrew had a fun scouting month in February! Our ward had their PINEWOOD DERBY! Andrew's car came in 2nd overall! He was pretty excited!!!
Max (L) got 3rd place, Andrew got 2nd, and Hunter (R) got 1st! I was proud of all the scouts!!! They all did a great job! Sometimes I miss being with the boys. I got called to work with the Young Women back in January.
Here is Andrew at the BLUE and GOLD banquet! :)
MARCH 1st was an exciting day!!! It was pretty windy! There's a crack under our front door that makes the wind howl when it's really windy! As I was making dinner, the kids were talking about how windy it was and comparing it to when we had Hurricane Ike! The wind was pretty strong and bending the trees quite a bit! Aimee said the it was because MARCH comes...
It sure did this year!!! All of the sudden, everything went DARK!!!
Luckily, we have a gas cook top and I was almost done cooking dinner! The kids didn't really want to eat in the dark, but we had our camping lanterns. I told them it was like when we had Hurricane Ike or when we go camping.
The blue glow on her arm is from her cell phone! :)
We had a great time relaxing in the dark, but were very thankful the power was back on by morning so we could get ready! :)
It finally looks like SPRING!!! The leaves are starting to come out on the trees! We've enjoyed "POPCORN" trees for a couple of weeks now! Edd and Bethany both commented today that there is more color on the trees now than there is in the fall! It is a very beautiful sight! :) We have been enjoying our short visit with the Robins. They will be soon leaving us and heading up north. We've also been enjoying beautiful weather! It finally stopped raining and it has actually been WARM!!! :) It has been so nice to have the windows open! :) It is still pretty windy...which is nice too, but now our whole world is covered in a light yellow dust! :)
We are counting down weeks till summer...8 left!!! Why much SPRING be so short?????
