Kyle had a fun project in school, he had to write a story. Full on rough draft, final draft, pictures, construction paper cover, kind of story. As most of you know, Kevin and I LOVE to read and write. So when Kyle sat down to do this, I sat to help him but Kevin was doing the dishes and was trying to put in his two cents also. I put an end to that! I was the one helping him! So we flushed out a story, and since it had a monster in it I had him create it again in one of his games called "Spore". He printed it out. Then he had to read his story to his class. We went to go listen to it and he did a GREAT job! Very clear, showed off his pictures and he looked very proud. I had a nice warm fuzzy!!

So Kyle finally had his first Pack Meeting! We all went as a family and he, and two other boys were awarded their Bobcat's. This is the first level in Cub Scouts. The only thing that marred getting his award... the Cub Master forgot to go purchase them! So he technically has it, but we are awaiting the badge. Kyle is also about 1/3 of the way through his Wolf, so we are hitting the scouting and having fun with it. And if you didn't know that we were a scouting family... now you do! Kevin is the 11 yr old. Scout Master so he as fun with that, while Kyle gets to do cubs. Happy 100th Birthday Boy Scouts of America!

So Christmas has come and gone. It exploded in our front room. Enjoyed by everyone, and continually picked up by Kevin and me. Jessica got a lot of Polly Pockets, which I find everywhere, just like Kyle's Legos. So as such I have the same attitude toward them.... pick them up! But if a piece gets sucked into the vaccum, too bad! Kyle got some transformers, Bionicles, and of course we all got a LOT of candy. I'm not looking at the scale to see how much weight all of that lucious candy has put on me (not much happily) and our Christmas Eve tradition of decorating sugar cookies stocked us up in even more yumminess. So Merry Christmas to all, and have a happy New Year!! See you in 2010!
