Quote of the evening: Carter on the Founding Fathers

Spencer and Carter are both working on famous american projects at school. They got to talking about everyone they were learning about. Here is a piece of that conversation.
Spencer: We were talking about George Washington, but for this project we have to pick an African American. [February is Black History Month] I chose Rosa Parks. Is anyone in your class studying Rosa Parks?
Carter: Yah, we have a Rosa Parks. We also have George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and someone is also going to be Thomas S. Monson.
Spencer: Do you mean Thomas Jefferson?
Carter: Oh, yah, it's Thomas Jefferson.

For a minute, I was impressed that the school was including American church leaders. Oh, well, maybe Carter will make sure he is included! :)

Spencer's Family Trip

Spencer is working on the Family Travel Belt Loop and Pin for cub scouts. He has to do a journal entry about his trip and I thought it would be fun for him to do it online. Here it is:
It was fun when we left the house. It was really hard to pack our stuff. On the 2nd day we went skiing. It was fun. I felt wobbly at first because I didn't know how to steer. I learned how to steer. I went night skiing. I went on a green circle run 2 times with my dad. On the 3rd day, I went in the hot tub and sauna. I loved every activity. Stay tuned...

That's all we've gotten to today, we think there might be more fun later this afternoon! :)
