opportunity to race in the district pinewood derby race. District does not have the program our pack has that tells time and mph so I do not have hard statistics to report, but Jack raced through the 6th round. It was nice since it's his last opportunity to race. He'll age out next year.

S led a scout campout this weekend. The boys earned several badges. One fun activity was planting seedlings, something S did 30+ years ago when he was a scout.
The boys cooked their own meal: the "cowboy" or "hobo" meal where you put a hamburger patty, potatoes, carrots and onion in tin foil and place it in the coals. It was amazing how many boys who said they weren't going to eat it actually enjoyed it.
Rain came Saturday night. The true campers stayed the course and hung their tents to dry the next day.

Sarah and I met our buddies, ER and her mommy at a local play place today. I still marvel that we were blessed enough to adopt at the same time as my sorority sister and her husband, and another family from our area. How wonderful it will be for these girls to grow up knowing one another, the families enjoying one another. God is good.
