Tyler's Eagle Project

Tyler's Eagle Project.  He visited with the principal at the Elementary School about what he could do for them to get his eagle project done.  He went into the meeting with some ideas to help the library and instead they found a great project.  There are studies about kids and learning.  They found that the little Kinder, 1st and 2nd graders need support for their feet.  If their feet dangle and aren't supported they have a harder time learning and concentrating.  Interesting.  So we decided to make stools.  About 100-200.  He did a great job planning and getting help.  We went to Home Depot and Lowes and got all the wood donated from HD and Lowes.  Yay.    He got started in December. 
Glue and Nails and wood.  Simple project.  The Principal was really excited and the teachers too. 
The first big push was a big success.  He had about 12 boys and 4 adults come out to help.  He finished up the project in Jan.  We delivered the stools before school started in January.
Such a great feeling to have them all done.  So proud of our almost Eagle scout.  Just need to finish up the paperwork now.

Snow Trip to Flagstaff

We love our sledding spot in Flagstaff. There's no one there and were able to go up and down freely without running into other people. It's just big enough for little kids and the boys have such a good time. I was pregnant during these pictures and was feeling it. But I was still able to snap some awesome pictures of the kids. Love their playfulness and the fun times that we had

Bearded Wonder

Grandpa I needed to grow his beard out for the trek. So here he is. He supported this beard for several months and it was really fun to have such a furry fuzzy and fluffy daddy/ grandpa
