Spring Day - FINALLY!

FINALLY! It was 55 degrees yesterday and it was heaven! After the boys came home from school we headed straight to the park! They have been waiting SO long to have some park fun, and it was so great that the sun was out and the weather feels so wonderful! They had a blast swinging and running! Mason loved the rocks and swinging on the swings. Luke has learned (I don't know how) to swing and pump himself on the swing, and really enjoys it. Ian loves to swing and jump off the swing, and his friends showed up and they played cops and robbers. It was great fun! Today it is 60 and just as nice! Maybe we'll head to the park again!

Legos are Ian's Favorite Thing!

Last weekend, Ian really wanted to go buy some toys at the store with his Christmas and Birthday money that he has been hanging on to for 3 months. He had quite a bit to spend, but he wasn't sure he wanted to spend it all. So we went looking. He about died when he saw the Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle, and just HAD to have it. I showed him how much it was, which was all the money that he had, and he contemplated and fussed over it for about 15 minutes! He finally decided that it was totally worth all his money, so he made the biggest purchase he has ever made. He wanted my help putting it together, which I totally didn't mind doing, *wink*, and it took us 2 days to finish it. Multiple time, he said to me, "Mom, I just love working on this quietly with you!" That really means a lot to me, and I know that I need to do that more often with him. He was so excited to finish his castle! And he did a great job!

Blue & Gold Banquet

Ok, so I'm a little late posting about the Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet that was last month! We had a great time! The theme was Magic! I made these cute centerpieces with the Rabbit coming out of the magic hat, and all the boys got a top hat and magic wand to take home! It was great! Ian got to be part of the flag ceremony, and he liked that. Ian also got some awards! I am so proud of everything he's doing in cub scouts and I'm proud of how he is learning to be a good person! He thoroughly enjoys scouts and I'm so glad! Ian even did a magic trick! He made a quarter disappear by rubbing it on his elbow! After a few minutes of fooling around, he finally got it! :) He was happy that his trick worked! All the boys showed us a trick and it was a great time!
