Just some updates!

I know that I have been sorely neglecting the blog.  Life gets too exciting and fun to sit down and type! I will keep trying to post pictures from our adventures!

 Duke has been excited about climbing mountains this summer and our first one was Baldy in Eagle River.  He did a fantastic job, though his older brother did a bit of complaining…  In the picture, they are doing Tae Kwan Do sparing poses.
 We went on our annual camping trip to Kenai Lake with a large group of friends.  I only took about 3 pictures, but we had lots of fun as it didn't rain!
 I have been trying to get in some hikes while the boys are away and this one was to O'Malley peak mainly so I could check on the lake.  It turns the most amazing colors as the snow melts.
We have been playing a lot of chess on our down time.  The boys are both getting quite good - Kincaid beat me once and Duke is getting better about thinking his moves instead of just trying to move his horse all the time.  : )

Saturday at the River

 The weather has been amazing.  The boys and I headed to Campbell Airstrip Trailhead to play at the river.  They did some drawing with their easels for a bit. It looked like I was holding a little art class.
 We moved down the river for some rock tossing.  I love that I caught the rock mid air in that shot!
 Kincaid spent a large amount of time trying to catch fry and he did get one.  Duke and I did some rock art which amused me greatly.

We had such a good time!

Just checking in...

 Last day of school picture!
 We played with friends at Point Woronzoff - they searched for treasures and sea glass.
We did our first orienteering race of the season and won our category!

Catching Up!

 The boys helped in the annual clean up day for the school.  We gathered 206 of the small liquor bottles - seriously people that is insane!
They also created a new record - 6 baskets delivered without being spotted.  They did a lot of crawling on the grass and hiding behind trees.

 They have started to watch a children's prank show and are always doing pranks on me now like the one above.  At least they aren't too sophisticated yet!
Then, Nam and I did the Bike for Women.  I was so proud of Nam!  That course is just hills - no flat at all.  I did get going 31 mph on one hill, but nearly didn't make it up when I came back.

boys

 The boys are starting to work on their science fair projects.  Kincaid said he had to 'get chopping' on it - so off we went.  It is about which paper makes paper airplanes fly the furthest.  I almost can't even look at this data gathering page.  He is so Type A about somethings, but obviously not writing...

I should have taken a video of Duke saying he "mustache you a question" with this absurd british accent.  It was hilarious.  He cracks me up!

weekend

 The boys couldn't agree on what to do, so I got to spend a little time with each of them individually.  Duke wanted to go to the library and walk around the duck lake.  Kincaid wanted to hunt for frogman (we didn't find him, but it was a lovely walk).
I also got the boys' Spring pictures from school.  I wasn't going to buy them as we got some from the start of school, but they look so darn cute don't they?  Nam is still in the throes of a bad cold, I have one and now both of the boys are getting sick too.  Urg.

Boys

 Two moose walked down the creek.  (not the start of a joke..)  The one in the back had small antlers growing, but the one in front was much smaller.  Maybe a yearling and a 2 year old hanging out together?
 Here is Sal (about 16 years old and ready for her walk!)
 We went on a hike with friends on Saturday.  It was beautiful outside!
 We hiked towards Girdwood from Rainbow.
It was windy, so lots of waves in the inlet.  It was so green at the base of the mountains, but it didn't pick up in the picture.  Good times nonetheless!
