Here he is cleaning out his room. He had four years' worth of papers and stuff to clean out and organize.
The boys had fun at their pack meeting, and we were glad to have Nathaniel there with us. Here they are playing a game to make the biggest "superhero" with balloons for muscles.
Jonathan received his Wolf badge
Daniel received his Arrow of Light and had his crossing over ceremony into Boy Scouts
We had dinner with Grandma on Friday, Aug. 3
On Saturday, Aug. 4, we celebrated Jonathan's birthday by going to Xtreme Air. He wanted to celebrate early so Nathaniel could be there. He was allowed to invite a friend, so he chose his good friend, Annabelle. They had a great time. We also went to lunch at Chick-Fil-A and then to see Christopher Robin.
On Saturday night, Nathaniel had a party and invited some friends over. They had a great time hanging out, talking, and playing games.
On Monday, a couple friends came over for one last "goodbye"
His request for his last restaurant meal as a family was to go to Red Lobster
Tuesday morning at the airport
We took pictures first, then said our goodbyes. It was pretty brutal and we all cried and hugged. It was so hard to watch him walk away, knowing I wouldn't be able to talk to him for a long time. We are so proud of him, and know this will be a wonderful experience and a great adventure for him!
We love you, Elder May!
