It's been a while, so excuse the length. Grab a cup of coffee or glass of wine, sit back and enjoy catching up with us. :)
Wow, I can't believe my last post was the first day of school! I'm really hoping to get better at this, because I want to give you all updates, but also be able to print out my blog for us. I'm not so good with scrapbooking. :) We've had a great year, and although I could go back to the beginning of it, I'm only going back to Spring.
We'll start with Nate's birthday. It was the big 1-0 and we've known for a while now that we would take him to Spring training in Phoenix to watch the Mariners. We're MLB.com subscribers so are able to keep up. We know them much more than the Rockies. He loved it...really can't get enough baseball. In fact, Nate has a practice game this Saturday before his season starts (it's training for umpires) and may also fill in to play 2 other games for a 12U team (he's 10U). Three games after a flag football championship game in the morning. This kid is a bit of an animal!
Mac crossed over from cub scouts to boy scouts. He actually attended his first boy scout meeting this night, right after his final cub scout meeting. I'm excited for him! He loves the outdoors and there is A LOT of camping with this new troop! He's already worked on an archery merit badge and will attend boy scout camp for a week in NE this June. He actually just passed a swim test, 75 yards continuous swimming, 25 yards backstroke so that he could take swimming, canoeing and SUPing this summer at camp. Swimming will go towards his Eagle scout award. Not many boys actually finish and get there eagle award, but I'm hoping Mac can do it. He's shooting for that!
This is Nate as the anchor on his school's shuttle relay team. This is a fun event the school district does. All the kids get excited for it as it's the only elementary track meet they do. It gets kids excited for middle school track!
Well that's it from the Eli Crew for now. Hopefully you'll be hearing from me more frequently!
