We’re very proud of Archer for spending a week of full days away from his parents at Scout Camp. And it turns out he’s a natural shot.

Every day he would come home with a another target full of bulls-eyes. (It’s a pretty large target for Tigers, but he’s very excited about being good at it. He got a “shots of distinction” certificate at the end of the week for making 5/5 bulls-eyes.

Here’s some photos of the last day, when us parents were invited for dinner and the campfire.

After moving to Oregon a year ago, we are taking our first full trip back to visit friends and vacation.

It was great to see the mountains, lakes and especially all of our friends we missed. Thank you Venters and Shizukus for giving us places to stay. We love staying with you.

We got to float the swan river with the Venters and the Loves. We’d never even been to that river in the 13-15 years we lived there.

We got to visit Nana’s old house and the first (red) house we bought together.

Special thanks to Kyo for taking great pictures of us (and staying at their house).

We swam in the canal with Dondon and ate peas with Amber

We got to kayak and paddle boat and go boating with even more friends

After a quick 10 days, we packed up and drove 10 hours home.

Thank you to all our friends we stayed with, played with, and enjoyed the company of.

Archer’s good (best?) friend, Blythe, was spending a day at our house. Blythe mentioned that he been learning to build with power tools so Anna suggested making a tree house or fort. We went around the property, until we found this great hollow to make into a base. We had a couple weeks of kids coming and helping set things up. Lots of brush cleaning and digging to get it, but the kids have done some good work.

Some Pictures from the Lego Party in Salem. Everyone had a great time. Even Nana and Ashton 😉

I asked Archer if he wanted me to paint a picture for his birthday. He said he wanted the Millennium Falcon. While I was drawing it, he came up and complimented me on it. I thanked him and said, “But you can’t see this because it’s for your birthday.” He looked away and said he didn’t see it. Ha.

A couple days later he saw it again and said, “I can’t wait to get that for my birthday.”

“Get what?” I asked

“Nothing. I don’t know what I’m getting for my birthday.” Haha
