Bug's Baptism

I had always looked forward to the day when I would have a kid old enough to get baptized.  Bug's baptism was a perfect and spirit-filled day.  His Uncle gave a talk and his Grammy sang a song.  Daddy baptized him.  Gigi and Bear gave the opening and closing prayers and Pops and Poppi were the witnesses for his baptism and stood in the circle with Daddy and the Bishop to confirm him a member of the church.  

  It was so nice to have Daddy's family visit from Tennessee and Aunt B drive in for the day.

Independence Day

Built a hoop house to keep the pesky deer out of our garden.
 Finally put a flag up and sang the National Anthem.

 Ate a delicious picnic dinner and played a family game of football.
 Finished the night up with family fireworks.

Bug turned EIGHT last week!  
(Showing off his new Birthday clothes.)
He picked the menu for each meal. Breakfast- Sausage biscuits with OJ.
Lunch- Deli sandwiches with Doritos.
Dinner- Barbeque sandwiches with green beans and okra.
(Anyone following the meat on bread theme?) :)
 Electronic Playground from his engineer Grandfather (Poppi).
 Sticky-ball from Bear.
 Other gifts: NCAA football cards with sleeve pages, athletic clothes, socks, and shoes, Elon Hat, Ticket to Ride game, and Cub Scout Uniform.

 Obsessed with football!

 Ready for a family football game.

Bug is more than a bit excited to start Cub Scouts this week.  The day after he turned 8 he completed all of his Bobcat requirements.   He was very anxious to move onto his Wolf requirements,  so we worked on his "Paws on the Path", certification by hiking 2 miles.  It was just the kids and I, so I was nervous how Belle would do, but everyone did great! 

Blueberry Deliveries

We picked almost five gallons of bluberries from our bushes one morning last week so we delivered some to our local police, firemen, and rescue squad.
