The Twins and Their DS’s

The twins got their DS’s for Christmas. They love playing on them and usually will play on them at the same time. They are absolutely obsessed with making sure their DS’s charge exactly the same amount. They coordinate plugging them in to charge and unplugging them as well. It is so funny to watch them. I’ve seen them grab their DS, look at each other, say “Ready? Unplug!” and then simultaneously unplug their DS. They go through the same routine when plugging them in. If one of them has his DS charging when the other’s isn’t charging, I’ve seen them get mad at each other about it.

Cub Scout Promotion Ceremony

Last night the Cub Scouts had their annual Promotion Ceremony. Aidan was promoted from Bears to Webelos and the twins were promoted from Tigers to Wolves.

Kayli GS Bridging – Junior to Cadette

Today Kayli bridged from Junior to Cadette. I was so proud of her and all our the girls in our troop. This year the girls earned their Bronze Award. The girls helped clean-up Huntington Beach near the Pier. They created fliers, enlisted the help of friends and family, and spent hours picking up trash on the beach. We are very proud of how hard our girls worked to “make the world a better place” in earning this award. In addition to earning the Bronze Award, the girls learned all about the United Kingdom and taught other girls what they learned at Thinking Day. They also participated at the HBSU3 camp-out and taught other girls how to do Cat’s Cradle during the Camporee portion of the weekend. The girls have been learning about Cadette Girl Scouts this year and are excited to start working toward their Silver Award next year.
