Dills = Neither awake nor amused.
The bangs WILL grow Manderzz (a Dad thing, he wanted them shorter than she did.)
OMG those chins...I am getting healthier though maybe this chubby drama will be over by fall!
Wow..that was some long hair he had a few months ago!
Dave Gregory helped with this project a lot. And Dick Peck has helped with paperwork more than I could possibly even try to describe! We're indebted to both! THANKS SO MUCH!
The project was helping with the remodel of the Bishop's House next to the Russian Orthodox church. Everyone has seen pictures of it before, most likely without even really noticing it -- http://www.arcus.org/TREC/VBC/index.php?showtopic=1874
Three of us got new 'dos this week -- I love mine and Manderzz is thrilled too. Dills is a bit pouty, but his dad is happy. Grandpa is heading here on the ferry from Kodiak. (Let's hope the freakin' monsoon-type rains are gone before he arrives on Saturday!!) There will not be a teen with THAT much hair here when Dad's Dad is here.
The kids have been in camp Qungaayux this week, it started raining so hard on MON that they sent them home early and held camp in the elementary school building yesterday and today. What a bummer! But that's life in Unalaska, you just adapt!
Jr. is about to become an Eagle Scout. He's pretty studious when he wants to be. (3rd in his class too, but since his 2 BFFs are #1 and #2 no bitterness!) He'd done all the required badges by the age of 13. We got the brillant idea to send him to the Jamboree in Washington DC. http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2005-07-26-scouts-cope_x.htm
That was tough!!! He never cared to participate in any scouting event after that incident. BUT he was so close to being an Eagle with "just a bit of encouragement" he's finished his project. (Thanks Dick Peck and Dave Gregory!!!!) We're filling out the paperwork required, having a meeting on THUR...hopefully tying up loose ends to be done with this accomplishement before school starts and he's completely swamped. He'll be the 1st Eagle Scout that I've heard of in the entire Aleutians...I need to do a bit more checking to validify that claim though. Most of the scouts out here don't get very far. People work so much and many families move here for a short time then leave, scouting has been hard to be consistant with, which bums me out...but I'm ME, I can't even tie a knot! I can't do too much about it.
