Dance Time

Danielle had her winter formal tonight. She looked so beautiful!
Since she's on the student council she helped plan the dance and decorate for it. She's pretty impressive all around, can't believe she's mine sometimes.
Growing up so fast.

So on our trip to Bali we took an old camera to let the kids take some pictures. I thought it was a good idea, right? Wrong! They ended up fighting over it most of the trip and I ended up taking it away several times throughout our stay, and forgot about it completely until we came across it the other day. The kids took some great pictures and some goofy ones too, here's some of their snapshots.
Avie is the photographer here and she has a very eager subject.
I love how in this picture Avie kept telling us to move back! She's an artist, very avant garde.
Our friend the frog.
Whoever took these got some great shots of the rice terraces!
The Bali Zoo
This was nice to find this camera and relive this fun trip, I might even let them do this again, maybe just make a camera schedule for the sake of peace!

Pinewood Derby

This past Saturday was the Pinewood Derby! Rayce did awesome, he had a design in mind for his car and did a great paint job. He ended up taking third place for the bears, and the surprise of the day, Avie Jo took first place in the sibling race!
Waiting for his turn.
Rayce with his pack.

As the mom of a scout I'm trying to have a better attitude about scouts and not grumble about one more thing to do. It really has been a good experience for Rayce and hopefully it helps keep him on track spiritually. He's a great kid!
