It was a crazy weekend of victories and fun for us including soccer, Scouts, a birthday party and trunk or treating.

The Red Dragons soccer team closed out their season this Saturday with a 9-1 win, officially making them an undefeated team!


We had a special spectator (who has not been able to make it to the games this season) come and bring us extra luck.  Thanks Nana!

I am so proud of our team…

And of my guy who had so many shut outs while in goal and 6 points while on the field.

Congratulations Red Dragons!

We had another Victory this weekend as well.  Aidan and the Lightning Warrior Patrol took home the Silver Platter Award at their Scouting event – Webelos Woods!  This event is an outdoor adventure where the older Cub Scout boys get to see first hand some of the skills they will learn as Boy Scouts.  The boys loved spending the day in the woods – especially with the older boys, even if it meant they had to wake up early.  This picture is before we realized Aidan had the wrong hat on.  (What?  It’s only from 2 years ago!)  I guess I am not the only one who needs coffee in the morning!

The boys were all so excited to see the adventures that await them.  They should be so proud of the way they presented themselves to the Boy Scouts.  They are getting so mature – truly young gentlemen.

They learned a lot too.  Aidan is still talking about the “lean-to” shelter he will get to build as a Boy Scout to sleep in overnight.  Hopefully that will be summer camping!

Cheers!  And congratulations Lightning Warrior Patrol Webelos on earning the Silver Platter Award!

To finish off the weekend we went to Trunk or Treat, Round 2.  The boys were all tired, but candy called.  This one was at a local church and was a lot of fun.  The trunks were all decorated great (Bikini Bottom was our favorite), the people were so nice and there was even cotton candy, popcorn and hot chocolate!

The boys left happy and tired after a great weekend.

So, I am wondering, am I the only one who feels like I should donate candy to the trunk or treat events we attend?
