Soccer and Birthday Fun – Take One

We finally had our first soccer game this weekend!  It was such an exciting game. Our team is full of talented boys and it was fun to finally see what they can do against another team. We ended up losing by one point, but it was a nail biter at the end!  We almost tied it up just as the final whistle was blown.  Next game…

Dane’s birthday is coming up and we started celebrating a tiny bit early this weekend.

Look at this cool warrior he got. It is made from recycled metal.

Dane’s actual birthday is during our fall camping trip with the Scouts. Can you imagine having a birthday sleepover with 50 friends in the woods!  What more could a kid want? Our Scout camping trips usually have a theme and this year it is “Shark Week.” Here is the birthday shirt I am making for Dane and his friends.

Camping with the Scouts is no joke so we will be busy this week getting ready for that. Our boys started today by making their version of nut-free trail mix.  It looks kind of gross to me now, but it is crazy how much better food tastes in the woods. I don’t understand why, but everything is delicious when we are camping. We do have great cooks, but I still usually would not eat mac and cheese.  Can anyone explain this to me?

So, I am wondering, have you ever gone camping?  Did you love it?  Hate it? Why?
