Happy Birthday Ian! Today Ian turned 14. It was so funny to see how cranked up he was, I mean, he could barely sit still at dinner. Poor kid had to go to school on his birthday. He handled it pretty well and we had some fun. This morning we sent him out the door with very loud birthday song and a hug and a kiss. I am certain that he was glad that we did that inside the house, he'd have been mortified if his friends had seen him. Here he is, in a rare close up with a big smile.

We had scouts tonight and the boys had a new project laid out before them, to create a patrol flag. The material was donated by someone that works at Wolverine World Wide, they tan hides right here in town you know. It was pretty interesting wandering around and listening to the "artistic" process unfold. Can you say pandemonium? Once the designs were established the leather tools came out and they require hammers and pounding and much arguing about where the exact placement should be. Needless to say, I have a headache now.

Here's a shot of the boy with some of his "loot". Two new PSP games and a flame "skin" for that same PSP. That's PlayStation Personal to the uninitiated.

Have a great day and Happy Birthday Buddy!
Pat (Dad)
