The last couple weeks have been CRAZY! I have two extra kids ( foster kids-siblings ages 6&12, and yes they are boys). So yes, I am crazy enough to have 7 BOYS here. Let me tell you- I think it would be cheaper to buy a cow.. The kids have all been G-R-E-A-T.  These kids are so sweet. They are a voluntary placement as mom is in a rough spot. She calls her kids every night. They get along really well with my group- its been fun. I forget how much help a 6 year old needs with their homework :)
I finished an arrow for an arrow of light award for our pack meeting on Thursday. I will upload the pics later. I am happy with it :)
I think this weekend I will take the kids swimming to the local pool. All the boys have been asking- its an easy enough request. They have been good raking the leave almost every day. We got our pumpkins from the local vegetable stand Saturday. We will be getting ready to carve them within the next week. I don't want to carve them to early and have them rot.
That's all for now, I need to catch up on all my other things :)


  1. 7 boys in one household sounds like a lot! But you sound calm so everything must be good. :-) I've read that rubbing Vaseline inside a carved pumpkins helps keep it preserved.

  2. Swimming in October? Wow, we had snow last week! Brrrrrrr!

  3. Swimming? In October?!! It snowed here last week, LoL! Brrrrrr!!!!
