We’ve made some huge progress on the new arena this week.

A few weeks ago, we had Cory put in our fence posts and I cut and screwed in the base boards around the edges. I met a nice man, named Rich Cox, in town, who lent me his generator so I found cut the 2×12 boards.

Both of our boys have had bikes for the last year at our new house, and they have enjoyed riding around the driveway pad, but in the last two months, they have really gotten into it. They’ve been out there riding in a circle on their training wheels almost every day.

Saturday, I finally found a second adult bike! So Sunday, we took our bikes (and Goldie) to the local park and rode around town as a family.

(We’ll get better pictures next time.)

I took Archer’s training wheels off for a little while and ran around behind him holding him up to give him a feel for it. He’s not quite ready to try on his own yet.

As we always enjoyed the small town rodeos in Montana, Anna was excited to see what a larger town in Oregon would have. Atley’s friend Desmond came along too.

Wow. The bulldozer came back for one last day of moving dirt. The pad is now larger and the sacrifice area also has a nice flat area.

I’ll try updating this category with some pictures and video of the First day of dirt moving.

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.
