Current Dr. Prince & future Dr. Prince


This the final product for Josh's Reflection contest. He won the photography contest. We were especially proud since in this contest adult participation is completely forbidden. The students have to do everything without help. Josh decided on what to do with the theme, took the pictures, decided on editing and composition. The only thing we really did was upload the pictures and upload the final product to the site to be printed.


In a surprising twist, Josh also won the science fair and is moving on to the district level. This was his final project. I guess when both your parents are scientists it is inevitable that some of the kiddos will enjoy science. Josh is one of those kids!


But in this "science" pond we have an even bigger fish and here he is at pack meeting putting on a chemistry magic show. When your wife is in charge of pack meeting you end up doing chemistry magic shows :) He was VERY popular and even managed to entertain the teenagers too! The scouts and all the other kiddos could barely stay in their seats he was that entertaining. And people, when I say entertaining I mean entertaining...John has his chemistry shtick down!





And this is why my hallway is still full of shoes and my kitchen is full of dishes...but I only have two more huge things to get through this week and then it begins again next Monday :)

When I went into Sammer's room this morning, I found this...

Apparently Seth could not get Sam out to play with him so instead Seth climbed in. He was reading Sam a book when I peeked in...
I was very glad my camera was right outside the door :)

Later Seth was playing with his "Teddy" so I snapped a few cute shots...

Happenings...

Okay...really this is just a picture post (with a little info)...

This was last night...we finally had a decent storm and it was beautiful. I didn't do anything to these pictures (actually, I don't do anything to any of my pictures as I have no software to do so :) That is how it looked last night...


Our street. That is our yard on the right but you can't really see the house...


There are very few pictures of me. I think I will need a tripod or a place to set my camera with a timer if I ever want a picture of me :) However, these two make a great pair also! Bep and Daddy at 3 months...

For my birthday last week Elizabeth started laughing. It was her first real laugh and a great present :) On her 3 month "birthday" she reached out and grabbed at something...Here she is all smiles and 3 months old!!



And a few pictures of Sammer being himself...
