The week of July 4th Collin and I enjoyed Boy Scout Summer Camp at camp Cherokee. This camp was a lot closer to home compared to Camp Daniel Boon last year, but… man was it HOT. This was not up in the mountains like Daniel Boon, and we broke some high temps during our week.
All the boys had a great week. As with most camps, there was plenty of walking back and forth, criss-crossing from one end of the camp to another, from one merit badge class to another. Collin completed 5 merit badges this week – Swimming, Indian Lore, Fish & Wildlife Management, First Aid and Model Design and Building.
I enjoyed the week also, assisting the boys, learning a few things and taking plenty of pictures through out the week. You can read more at our Troop 17 web site.
We had a splashing good time for Collin’s birthday. Local family came over for a swim. We all enjoyed some cake and Collin of course got a few gifts. The weather was fantastic. Caitlin enjoyed being launched into the air… sorry Austin you're getting a bit old and big for me to be throughing you up in the air like this anymore. Grandma and Grandpa of course forgot their suites again...

In the glow of the early evening sun, Kim grabbed my camera and snapped some great pictures of Caitlin. This was almost the perfect time of day for this kind of thing. What would have made better was to NOT have a clear line of sight between the setting Sun and the subject. The lighting isn’t to harsh, but close.
Caitlin didn’t seem to be concerned… she was working the camera…
I must say… Kim did a wonderful job with taking these pictures…but then she learned it all from me.
