One of many doggy photos

I usually find about 50 surprises whenever I download photos from my camera. This time my surprise was dozens and dozens of poses of Cassie, which is a little more interesting than the LEGO photos I usually find. The boy has his own memory card, but we both get confused about which one to use. I should get him a camera for his birthday, but we have other plans.

Pinewood Derby

Ethan had the best weekend full of Pathfinder events. We dropped him off Saturday morning at 8:30, met him for lunch, and then didn't see him again until 9 p.m. What a day—meetings, community service, skating, swimming.... The next day was even better; he finally got to race his pinewood car! We put in a couple of hours at the derby, enough to see him win two of his three heats and a lot of other action as well. I'm grateful to all the adults who have the energy, creativity, and commitment to put together such great times for our kid. Amazing.

First Night Spokane

Ethan made a bunch of kids' crafts, visited a castle, slid down a slide made of ice, fake-auditioned for children's theater, joined a parade, watched a film festival, listened to gospel, swing and blues was quite an evening for all of us. I think his favorite event was hamming it up at the children's theater. He really blew them away with his many interpretations of the line, "I won't grow up."
