Weekend Wrap-up...

How is the first week of March already over???

Last week Blake completed a school science project. He had to make a 3-D animal cell. He worked really hard, researched the project and got really creative with ideas for each part of the cell. I'm happy to report that his project earned a perfect score and is currently on display in the school trophy case.
I'm even happier to report that he can point to each part and tell you what it does!

Saturday morning we attended Kevin's annual Blue Gold banquet for Cub Scouts. He earned his Bear badge. We are so proud of him!Sunday Blake worked on a requirement for one of his Boy Scout merit badges. He selected a tree (a red dogwood) to plant in honor of my Pappa who passed away nearly four years ago. Blake was really close with his great-grandfather.

Soon he hopes to add some sort of memorial stone by the tree. He has such a kind heart.

Well, that was our first week. I guess time flies when you are having fun!

Congrats to both of your boys! And planting the tree was such a sweet gesture!

The cell is awesome! And that's coming from a biology teacher :) Great job, Blake!

Congrats to Kevin! Love to see that you and Tom wore blue and gold as well.

The tree will always be such a wonderful memorial for your pappa. What a special project for Blake to work on.
