Merry Christmas and Happy New Years from the Oregon A-Team.
It was a very busy year for us all.

He loves to play with his two best friends, who are neighbors.

He loves reading and math.
He just learned how to solve the rubik’s cube in about a minute.
He is in the Webelo Cub Scouts. Ashton is his leader.
Archer also loves soccer and Karate. He just earned his Purple belt.
All the boys went to a local Oregon cub scout camp, which was a blast!
Atley is 6 (almost 7) and Archer is 9. This is our first time camping outside with both boys (only Archer has gone to a summer camp before). This is our first time at Butte Creek, and although the staff shortage was very noticeable, the boys had a blast!
Our pack is pack 215, and we brought 10 kids and 8 adults. We were put in the Yellow Rose campsite with pack 503, who had 3 kids (all bears) and 3 adults.
