Happy 18th Birthday Jensen~

It's a big weekend for Jensen, he submitted his application to become an Eagle Scout, and he is turning 18!  Here is one of his senior pictures.  Jensen is my quiet unassuming child who never wants his pictures taken.   He finally caved in when we explained that it was for mama and not him, the only condition was that we don't post on Facebook.  Well after he saw the pictures he said it was ok if I put a few on there.  We are so proud of him and the wonderful person he is.  He is a wonderful big brother to Faith and is very nurturing.  For his Eagle Project he organized a local "Walk the Wall" where he raised over $2500.00 for the non profit group International China Concern.  Here are a few pictures of his project!   I am so excited to see what other contributions he makes to society as he continues to grow and progress.  We love you J!

Day 18 ~ Silly Girl

I am surprised at how easy taking Faith's picture every morning has become.  It is just part of the getting ready process, eat breakfast, comb hair, brush teeth, get picture taken.  I am so glad she is having fun with it.  Most mornings are candid shots, meaning I say, "Let's get your picture taken." She comes along casually to the porch still holding the toys she is playing with.  Yesterday it happened to be a mirror.  I captured her playing with it before we got to the ,"say cheese" part.  Today she was watching Sponge Bob (her favorite) and playing with her matching doll.

Day 13 ~

Mom bought me this t-shirt from Chicago!

Day 12 ~ No Pressure?

Day 12 has a great story!  I went to Chicago to visit my grandmother and Faith's daddy was in charge. Poor guy, it was picture day at school, plus the pressure of my assignment to get a picture of her before she leaves.  I think he did a great job as Mr. Mom!  Thanks hun:)

HELP! An amazing Eagle Scout Service Project!

This is my son Jensen and his cute sister Faith.  He is working on his Eagle Scout.  We need help.  He is organizing a local walk to raise funds and awareness for the nonprofit group International China Concern.  They provided much needed services for the abandoned and disabled children in China.  They are amazing!  It is a small Christian based group that accomplishes so much with what little resources they have.  Please post this to your blogs, and spread the word.  Our walk is one of sixteen Nationally.  The goal is to raise $35,000 this year.  We need walkers and sponsors.  So if you don't live close to a walk, you can still support by donating to a walker,team or family. 

Time is running out...our walk is September 22nd, 2012

I have been so lazy about bringing a camera, I am burned out on lugging that huge thing everywhere.   I still feel obligated to keep my journal/blog updated, so I am quickly recaping.  Last day of school June 20th YEA!  Camping and boating for 7 days at Sunrise June 24th - 30th.  We had mostly beautiful weather, and Jeff and I learned how to Wake Surf :)  (This is not us by the way...sure you figured that out on your own...just an example I found) Kylee and Jensen stayed home and worked, so we had just 4 of us.  One rainy day we went bowling with two other families, Lewis's and Child's.  Faith and Gage were inseperable the entire week.  Campground had grouchy old people running it, and they told Faith she couldn't ride her Barbie car...so we went and bought her a little bike as an early birthday present.  She loved it. 
4th of July week was busy.  Breakfast at the church with the firefighters, then party at the Hunsaker's with swimming and BBQ and fireworks.  Faith's 5th birthday party Saturday July 7th...Rainbow Unicorn Party ~ was a big hit and all the kids had so much fun. Thanks mom and grandma for the darling unicorns ~ kids LOVED them! Oh and Jeff had fun with the pinata legs :)
Camping/boating again July 9th ~ 12th at Sunlakes.(favorite campground)  Dallin brought a friend Bennett, Kylee,Dallin, and Faith came also.  Jensen again stayed home to work.  110 degree weather, and beautiful.  We all got very tan.  Sad day when Jeff ran into a submerged rock in the lake and did about 3500.00 worth of damage.   We were fortunate it didn't sink and no one was hurt.  Made the best of the vacation and swam and played in the water most of the days.  The nights we stayed busy going to local towns.  Grand Coulee Dam light show, Spiderman movie in Ephrata, and a Mexican restaurant for Faith's actual birthday.   They startled her when they put the hat on her and started singing.  Great little get away even with no boat. 
July 18th ~ 21st Tucker's sister's wedding.  I made the cake, and we got to go with family to her endowments, then the marriage.  It was so fun.  Reception was also so fun.  We helped quite a bit and enjoyed seeing the family so happy.  July 22nd had Lind's over for dinner they are moving to Utah, said goodbye.  Love that family but happy we will see them when we visit.  July 23rd ~ Group FHE at our house to distribute flyers for Jensen's eagle project.  www.walkthewall.org had root beer floats after. July 27th leaving for Utah to visit family and take Jensen to EFY in Provo.
