A Spring Update

The cars have been weighed and approved for competition.

Bishop is excited and ready to go!

After being interviewed about the making of his car, Bishop got to compete in the sharpshooting event.

He came within 10 inches of the "x" which was the closest of any in his den or any of the dens that went before him! He is so proud of that accomplishment!

Then came the race...

Although Bishop did not take first place, he was truly excited to see his creation perform!
It was a wonderful evening!

Meanwhile, Maceo has been performing in a small production entitled,
"A Grimm Night for Hans Christian Andersen."

He is one of the Brothers Grimm and they confront Hans Christian Andersen on his "stealing" of their stories.

Then begins some very creative presentations of some well-known fairy tales.
Maceo was Rapunzel's prince in one of these retellings.

It was a fun show and allowed Maceo to do what he loves most -
act, be with his friends, and make new friends.

Meanwhile, Christian is busy growing up and getting older.
We celebrated his 22nd birthday!

He chose a breakfast burrito bar for his dinner.
It was a smashing success!

I had a bit more success making his cake then I did making Bishop's despite having a bit of a pan issue. I now realize that every cake pan that I have actually belongs to Keegan, I may need to rectify that. I sent Keegan's 9" pans to her so that she could make birthday cakes for Ian and herself, this left me without any standard cake pans. So I had to make do. Given the candles that I had selected the larger cake was probably a blessing and given the difficulties I had with Bishop's cake the smaller top layer was probably a blessing as well. At least this top layer didn't slide off. I will get my cake-making feet under me at some point, I think.

Happy Birthday, Christian!
I love you!
