MJ has been a part of this 4H club now for almost a year.

This was from his second competition.
He did pretty well in his team.
The team itself didn't place, but they had a good time.
He also did his personal best in 3-D archery.

I think he prefers bow to the gun at this point.

Back in the winter he also gave his first public presentation.
While visibly nervous, he did an awesome job!

And has a blue ribbon to prove it!

Keep up the good work!

We decided to start a new tradition of having a special date with Daddy on each person's birthday.

Missy has the first birthday of the year and so she got the first outing.

She chose to go ice skating and out for ice cream.

It was her first time ice skating and I think it was a success!

Can't forget the ice cream!

We hope you had a lovely 7th birthday, Missy!

This year has brought a lot of changes.
Some good, some not so good.

Anyway, MJ and Bean decided that they didn't want to do softball or baseball this season.
I didn't argue, but I asked them both at least 50 times if they were sure (of course, Bean changed her mind, but it was too late already).  So, we had Missy in a ponytail league.
She is very much enjoying softball and the season is coming to a close in a few short weeks.

I must say, I don't miss having to juggle time between three different teams!

We are still here.
I think this has been the longest break to date and I cannot promise to be consistent at this point in time.  However, here are some recent pictures from the park on a beautiful, sunshiny day!

Our princesses.
