We attended a Court of Honor for the Boy Scouts tonight. Carson received the On My Honor Award for at least two years active service in Boy Scouts and reaching Star rank. He also received his 45th merit badge. Seth advanced to 2nd class and received his 6th and 7th merit badge. Both really enjoy scouting along with their Dad. Way to go!

The boys came home from the annual father and son camp out yesterday. They went to Little Sahara and enjoyed lots of what the sand dunes have no offer. Lots and lots and lots and lots of sand that is. They were accompanied by many of their friends to enjoy a night of roaming and exploring. Nathan, our family bug collector, found an impressive stink bug. Seth went four wheeling and got kissed in the face by a passing branch. OUCH! Carson hung out with his buddies while Carp relaxed with the other dads and chatted. In the morning they all got together to have a big breakfast before breaking camp. After they got home Carson took his shoe off and dumped a handful of sand in my hand. Carp and the boys cleaned up all their stuff and shook out all the sand they could. Yet, there was still lots of sand in the washing machine when I cleaned their clothes. Fun! Crunch, crunch goes the dryer door. They had a good time so it was all worth it!

His school recently did a fundraising concert for their music department. He played in a couple of pieces. The first piece was called "Gallagar Gal" and you can view the part I recorded by clicking here. Some of it is a bit jumpy - I was the one recording, need I say more? In the second piece the kids loosened up by wrapping their ties around their heads and rolling up their sleeves to play a combination of selections from Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Mans Chest. If you want to watch it, click on this. Hats off to the teachers that can get teenagers to do so well and to the kids that worked so hard to do it.
