Happy Easter 2023

We had a wonderful time at Erin’s this Easter Sunday.

Anna run the pony rides, and we did some training with Erin’s dog, Bear.

We also go in our regular (not) “Easter-themed” board game, Blood Rage! Michelle won in the final round with an amazing quest upgrade.

We played a game of Moonrakers with Erin as well, which Jason won in a photo-finish.


Merry Christmas From the Oregon A-Team

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years from the Oregon A-Team.

It was a very busy year for us all.

Ashton is overhauling his website business. He’s been creating and marketing custom website designs since 2003 with Websites in a Flash, but has started to really focus on online marketing (SEO and online ads).

Anna’s continues to run her horse barn, Whispering Oaks and her dog-breeding business, Sweet Pine Puppies. She has been enjoying learning so much about dogs and dog training.

Atley is 7

He loves art more than anything. He draws and paints. He loves training dogs with Mom.

Anna is Atley’s Cub Scout Leader as a Wolf. Atley loves soccer. He’s competitive and loves challenging his brother.

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

Archer is 9

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!


Rosco Sanders 2006-2022

Rosco was Anna and my first dog. He arrived at our house the very first morning after we moved into our Montana Ranch, after living in a truck bed.

He was the sweetest dog we could ask for, and we’re so happy for the many years of endless love he shared with us.

He was a great learner and quickly learned to be great friends with his sister, Mocha.

Archer Atley Scouts Trips & Activities

Butte Creek Cub Scout Ranch 2022

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.

Here’s a video of the skit we did at the closing campfire:

Archer is in the tan shirt, and Atley is 5th from the left.


Atley’s morning quote

Dad says, “Strawberries are like candy!”

Atley says, “No. Candy is like candy.”
