Sunday was Doodle's 9th Birthday. He's grown and is such a silly, energetic kid. (sometimes I think that energy will be the death of me! lol)
Doodle- you are sure a fun kid to be around, and bring such energy to our home! I am so grateful to have you as my son. I have enjoying homeschooling you, and pray for you every day. I pray that all will go smoothly as you go to public school in a few weeks, and that the teacher will be able to challenge you and help you to continue to enjoy learning!
HAA! Has anyone else noticed- I've been getting a bit more cooperation in the picture taking area lately- lol- Cute cute kiddo!
|Doodle wanted a Kayak for his birthday- and was absolutely THRILLED to get this. He's already used it, and loves it!|
|"Mom are you going to put toys on my cake for me?" he asked- so after a quick trip to town Saturday night- I found a toy kayak- the perfect cake topper.|
|Showing his cousin W how to work the kayak.|

Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting play a big role in our homeschool....well, actually in our lives. I truly believe in the scouting program. It teaches boys how to become MEN. From Cub Scouting's Core Values to the Scout Oath & Law, boys learn how to be MEN.
The core values of Cub Scouting are Citizenship, Compassion, Cooperation, Courage, Faith, Health & Fitness, Honesty, Perserverance, Positive Attitiude, Respect & Responsibility
As boys know and learn about these values, commit to live by them, and Practive living them they become better members of families and society.
Doodle just recently earned his Wolf badge (sorry- Roo was my photographer!) I am so proud of him for setting the goal to earn it, and to finishing what he started. He has had wonderful leaders, and is looking forward to his birthday when he can move up to the Bear Den.

I think we've sure played a lot this year ;) This cabin trip was a "work" trip though- we built a new deck for the cabin. It turned out great!
|Amber the awesome- cutting boards for the deck|
|Doodle loved to help drill.|
|The LAST board.|
|4 cousins eating their pizza on the deck....until the mosquitos about carried them away. Doodle- his buddy L, Roo, and his buddy W.|
