Mar '08

Wow! Has it really been a year since there has been an update?
Has it really been 11 years since I started this page? I don't think the term 'BLOG'
was used when I started. I did try to keep a diary... Of course, I had more time.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Since the last web page update, I have completed my bachelors degree program, I have become our Cub Scout Den Leader (Ruth has dropped to Assistant Den Leader since she has now returned to school), and we have initiated plans to add on to our house. The addition will be adding a room for the daycare for use primarily by the older kids, and a master bedroom for us (so I can get my dresser out of my closet). We are looking forward to the changes! We will be able to have more space for storage, and we won't have to trip over toys all weekend. I will be doing some of the work, like tiling the bathroom and painting. I will try to keep a diary of the process. So far, we have a set of plans and are closing on the construction loan during the first week of March. Look for a link to appear shortly.

Visit our 'scout' page for notes on our Adventures in Scouting. Isaac has recently completed his Bear requirements, and will start Webelos rank in June. We have had many new experiences this year, and have many more to come. As the Den gets older we are able to do more interesting tours, and more complex projects.
