Summer, Scouts, and Sleeping In

Since my kids have been out of school there hasn't been a lot of crafting going on around here.  Unless you count the patches I painstakingly (I'm not kidding, there was a lot of unpicking and resewing going on) sewed onto this snazzy Scout shirt.

But a cut-back-on-crafting Summer is fine with me.  We've been having fun staying up late, sleeping in, playing with cousins and neighbors, and last night we went fishing.

Dallas had his first Cub Scout Pack meeting, and the whole family went along to enjoy the evening.

We went fishing at a neighborhood pond.  I continue to be amazed by the beauty around us here, and by the cool Summer evenings.  Arizona is HOT in the Summer, even at night.  So I truly appreciate these COOL Utah Summer nights.

We're on the cusp of Family Reunions, a Mom and Dad only vacation for me and Travis, Dallas' baptism, and visiting friends and relatives.  I love this time of year, and am so happy the kids are out of school.  Yea for Summer!

I can't get the darn scout lady to call me back in our new ward. I'm not really looking forward to monthly pack meetings but Seth is.

Sewing on scout patches is the curse of a mother's life. But the boys love it so much. What's a mom to do but stitch away?
