Scout Awards

Tonight was our big pack meeting were the boys received all their awards they earned. Noah earned his BobCat Badge and two achievement beads for his WolfScout Badge. The boys were really excited to get their badges - and our little guys did great as they waited patiently for everyone to get their badges.

Who is that GORGEOUS den leader ? ? ? Oh that is my fabulous honey . . . He is such a good leader for these boys - I am so thankful that they have a Godly role model for their leader.

Each of the our Wolf Mothers received a special BobCat pin that the boys pinned on. We were just a little nervous about this . . . but surprisingly there was no bloodshed :-)

Avery really enjoys going to the meetings as well - I didn't get a picture of it, but as the boys were saying the pledge she had her little fingers up to her brow saying it right along with them. I think it is going to break her heart when she discovers that BOYS scouts is for BOYS only and she will have to go to GIRLS scouts one day.

Congratulations Andrew & Melissa

My cousin Andrew is getting remarried tomorrow - so I actually sat down and made a wedding card and matching envelope. I have been wanting to get back to crafting, but I just have been so consumed with repainting and redoing the house that crafting keeps getting pushed further and further down the line. I must confess that it felt good to get ink on my fingers again.

Anyway I'm really excited for him and his soon-to-be wife. For all of you who know Andy we have been praying for a long time that God would send him a help meet. He is such a wonderful

guy and Bob and I both think a great deal of him. Congratulations to you both - see you tomorrow at the wedding ! ! !

Soccer Star

Okay so he's not what you would call the soccer star . . . but none the less he tries. Noah has his last game this Saturday (which I must confess I'm glad - it has been a busy September & October for the Allen Family). I don't believe he will be playing again next year - it is just getting a little too much with Cub Scouts and Music and Avery's Dance - but we will see. Anyway enjoy the pictures. Oh and don't be fooled - those dirty knees happened before the game when he was wrestling with Daddy :-) Like I said he is a dirt-boy not a soccer star ! !

Stretching before the game

I thought this picture turned out great. Most of the time this is what he does - runs back and forth sometimes with the ball . . . sometimes not.

A look at the whole team - I took 4 photos and everyone of them Noah looks like this . . . sometimes you just got to go with it and not worry about the pose.
I pray that everyone has a wonderful night and weekend.

Entering the blogger world

I can't believe that I am actually entering the blogger world. For those of you who don't know what a blog is - it is just simply a place to post daily thoughts, events and whatever else may come my way. My hope is that I will be able to keep everyone more informed and updated on our family and things happening as I find that we are getting busier and busier with life. So we will see how it goes . . . Have a great evening everyone and we will be talking (posting) again soon.
