Liston earns his Wolf!

Liston has had fun being in Cub Scouts the last few months. Wednesday was the Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet and Liston received his Bobcat badge, Wolf badge and a gold and silver compass point! I'm proud of him for all his hard work and it was fun to see him get his badges!

Here he is getting his badges

Feeling a little on the spot!

With Dad.
Next month is pinewood derby. Time to get working on a fast car!

Spudchase xc ski race

Well we're a little late posting on the boys second ever XC ski race.  It wasn't as warm as the year before but still a nice day.  Both kids were 7 minutes faster than they were the year before.  They were at the back of the pack as far as the other kids but they are also the littlest ones.  We were proud to see ho much faster they have gotten.  Deacon tried really hard and was full of sweat afterward.  Liston still leaves a little to be desired as far as his effort goes.  However he has made great improvements on his skiing.  Deacon still likes to just take off and run on his skis.

Liston taking off.

Deacon ready to go.

Coleman hanging out.

Spud Chase was at Teton Springs wich is probably our favorite track with its nice little hills and scenery.
Next year maybe they'll be on skate skis instead of classic skis.

Coleman WINS

The boys have been making beds with blankets in the living room and playing for the last couple of weeks.  Coleman decided he was going to sleep in his for the night.  Mom and dad said NO repeatedly.  And then told him NO some more.  And some more.  And some more.  While we were in the kitchen I went to go check on him downstairs and he was alseep on the bed he made!!  So I left him.
