We never saw these swans before but we did get out into nature yesterday

Turns out kids have resolved their  Minecraft argument and hubby’s having a snooze on the sofa so I am actually free to waste a bit more time on here! Yay! Still don’t know how to change the pics so you’ll have to bear with me.

Alex graduated Cub Scouts yesterday so we headed 100 or so miles west to Gonzales State Park for their campout. Sadly (or luckily) Joshie came down with a stinking cold so we wimped out of the camping bit. It pretty much rained all day so although the boys were initially disappointed, waking up warm and dry and within easy access to the Xbox this morning they were relieved. It was a lovely day despite the weather: a hike, some football, making fire and as much noise with their friends as they possibly could. Alex got his “Arrow of Light” which I had lovingly crafted (if lovingly means an excess of cursing and return trips to Hobby Lobby) in a dramatic but sweet ceremony and was welcomed into the world of Boy Scouts complete with face paint, flaming arrows and native American head dress…I said it was dramatic!

Proud of my boy for his efforts although Joshie is after crafting his own arrow now that he can put his own science awards on…wants to go looking for suitable materials for one but I’m knackered and after making Alex’s, I’m all arrowed out!

First off...I ain't no crafty person...if you've come for sewing tips, move along...nothing to see here. The occasional project for the kids where i tell them "to just hold it like that and people won't see that wonky bit". Altho maybe I am crafty in the "see if I can get the hubby to think it's his idea" sense. Yep! I'll admit I'm crafty there! But I am most definitely a Mom (and also a Mum as my eldest still prefers the English way to the American that my youngest has "toadally" embraced). And I love being their Mom! They are awesome kids. Chalk and cheese and peas in a pod! And they love bloody Minecraft. Building blocks, infinite possibilities, making mistakes but just starting again or trying a different way and a bit of fun altho I prefer good old country or 80's music to that soporific tune Minecraft drives me crazy with. Hence the clever pun. That and I couldn't think of a suitable Star Wars alternative.
