Raingutter Regatta

Kendrick's cubscout pack had a raingutter regatta at his last meeting. They had two raingutters filled with water. Each boy had been given a boat kit to assemble and decorate. They raced their boats in the gutters by blowing on the sails. Kendrick did quite well at first. He didn't win, but he had a great time anyway. Our pastor's son did win first place and will go to the district race.

At the "dock" ready to go.

On your mark, get set...


They all got a ribbon for participating.

Dad's and Dustin's Birthdays

Dad and Dustin both have birthdays in November. We were together last Saturday to celebrate them.

This is the picture of a present that he is going to receive. It isn't in yet.

Lately everyone gets to pick what kind of dessert they would like to have. Dustin picked ice cream dessert. Since it is a little hard to put candles into, Christina made a small cake for that purpose.

A few more pics for your enjoyment.

My kids were invited to three fall parties this year: one at the nursing home where Mark's dad is, one at church, and one in town. They were chosen as "best of a group of 3 or more", and were on the front page of a local newspaper. Here they are in all their "finery". (The extra is Kayleigh, a friend.)

Dawson's Birthday

I am way behind in my posting (again). This was the October birthday get-together. Dawson turned 4 years old. We also celebrated Mark's and Marsha's birthdays.

Checking it out.

His reaction to new socks.

Trying out the new sleeping bag.

Thanks, Aunt Crystal, Uncle Paul, Erika, Paul David and Alana
