Well, our vay-cay for next week to DC had to be canceled, due to leave not getting approved. Kind of a bummer but it is ok. We knew it could happen.

Trey is going out this weekend to a CAP event, Rocketry Weekend and they are sleeping outdoors! BBBBRRRRRRR!!! Another cadet in his squadron has offered the use of a tent and Dad has given him a very good sleeping bag to use, so he should be warm. They are working on their Rocketry Badge, they will build and launch 2 non-solid fule rockets and 3 solid fuel model rockets. They will also take three written tests thru the weekend, so he has been studying Module 4 in his CAP book (which is all about rockets!). Will post pictures if they become available.

Now I have to figure out what to do for Travis' birthday (next week) and Trey's birthday the week after...we are thinking paintball, for a bunch of 12 and 13 year old boys, but have not yet been able to contact the person in charge...we play phone tag a lot. Why did I have kids right before and right after a major holiday????

Ken is doing well with his drill sergeant leader certification but it is wearing him thin. It will all be over soon and he can start instructing new drill sergeant candidates soon...I think they get their first batch in January. And he is scheduled to go to ANCOC in March, which I know he is looking forward to. It will be a nice break for him!!!
