I am the first to admit that I am a terrible scout mother. I know nothing about scouts. Damon has been fortunate to get some great den leaders that have helped him get his Wolf badge. We did some of it together at home, but they did a lot at the den meetings. I appreciate the help and maybe by the time Sean is in scouts I will have it down. :) Here is a picture of Damon at Pack Meeting last Thursday getting his Wolf Badge as well as 2 silver arrow points and 1 gold arrow point. He is so excited to have grandma sew them on his shirt. Way to go, Damon!!!

Look Mom! No Training Wheels!

Evan has been practicing riding his bike without training wheels for most of the summer. Just the other day he decided he was ready to practice some more. He caught on pretty quickly other than turning and starting by himself. Well, I am proud to say that he has mastered bike riding! He can start, turn and stop all by himself now! What a big boy he is becoming! Way to go Evan!!

Last day on the lake

So, here we the end of summer. :( It is always so sad to know that we have to wait 8 months to get out on the lake again. So, for our final day on the boat we decided to try something fun. Darrell is getting really good at wake surfing at has been able to stay in the wake for quite a while. He told me to get on the back of the boat and try to kiss him while he was surfing. Here is the picture that Damon (our new little photographer) took of our successful attempt!

HCG Diet Day 15

So, I made it through another week, but this time not so great results. I must admit that I did cheat and have some bread once and that may have stifled my whole losing process. I am up to a total of 12.2 pounds lost and 13 inches. I still feel great and am re-motivated for my last week! I am hoping to get to a total of 20 pounds. Wish me luck!

My baby Evan is now a big boy and had his first day of Preschool today. He was soo excited and couldn't wait to get there. After dropping off his big brothers at school, we proceeded his preschool. I asked him if he was ready and he said "Yes!" I asked him if he was nervous and he said "No!" I took him in and helped him get situated and he said, "Bye Mom!" No worries. When did my baby get to be so big and independant? He is so smart and I am so excited for him to start learning to read and write.

My Handsome Evan

Sean wanted to get in on the picture taking this morning.

HCG Diet Day 8

Wahoo!! I made it through week 1 of 4! I have some great results to post! I have lost 9.8 lbs and 11 inches in 7 days! I must admit that it has been very hard to stick to the 500 calories each day. I am HUNGRY and it has been hard to cook dinner for my family and not be able to eat it. As long as I continue to see these kinds of results, I will keep on keepin on! I can't really "see" the difference yet, but I did put on a pair of pants that I haven't been able to wear for most of the summer. That felt good! Anyway, I will keep you all posted.
