Rebecca's End of the Year AHG ceremony

Image
Last Tuesday night, we went to celebrate Rebecca's American Heritage Girls scouting season. Her troop held their awards' ceremony. Rebecca earned 3 badges, a service star (for doing 10 hours of service) and several patches. 







The troop coordinator even presented me with an award for bravery since I touched the snake at the zoo overnight. 



Overall, it was a nice evening and am proud of Rebecca for all her hard work in her American Heritage Girls troop.

Nature Scenes for May 20, 2018

Happy Sunday! I have been a very bad blogger this week. I just realized I had not written all week. Too much going on. This past week has had a plethora of events and things going on; I am really hoping to recap everything this coming week! For now I want to get these nature photos up, as I have to finish getting things prepped for Jacob's First Communion party later today! So I hope everyone enjoys these photos and has an awesome Sunday! 
Sunday is meant to be a day of rest and relaxation and one of the ways that I rest is to spend time in nature. I try to spend a least a little bit of time in nature each week. I have decided that I will use Sundays to share the photos of my nature adventures each week just as a way to relax and share the beauty that is God's creation with all. I hope you enjoy!

The past week in review--- camp, walks, football craziness!

Let the May craziness begin! LOL. That has been the theme around here the last week or so....so I figured I would just do a week in review kind of post to hit the highlights of what we have been up to:
MONDAY We dropped Rebecca off to school early as she was heading off to a 3 day/2 night camp with all the other 5th graders in our district. She was really looking forward to it.
After dropping the boys off to school, we ran to Walmart to get an air filter and cat food. We also attended the soft opening of a new sub shop here in town that Bill will be working at. The owner invited us over for lunch on the house. It was yummy! 

We also took a nice 4 mile walk on the Kokosing Gap Trail.
I then went to tutor and home, then off to football practice for Jacob and hill rolling time for Benjamin! 



TUESDAY Tuesday, I went to the grocery store after I took the boys to school. Then home and out for a nice walk over at Ariel, where I did the tower and we saw lots of wildlife including snakes.
