Hi everybody. I don't have any pictures to post today, I've only taken two pictures since my birthday, and they're still on my camera. Not much has been happening. I'll get the bad news out of the way first: We're not going to be able to make it to Boise for Caitlin's graduation. I thought we would, but I forgot about the dogs and it would cost us more money than we can spend to board them for that weekend. Sorry. I can counter that bad news with some good news though: Faith is definitely coming to Idaho later this summer. We're not sure when, but it will probably be mid summer once fire season gets going and I'm gone.
On to other news. Simon got pulled out of wrestling while I was gone at training. Faith went to two of his practices (they ask parents not to go very often as the kids will focus more on the parents than the coach, apparently) and at the first one Simon wasn't listening to his coach at all and when Faith talked to the coach he said that's pretty typical for Simon. So Faith talked to Simon and told him if he didn't start listening to his coach that he wouldn't come to wrestling anymore. So at the next practice, he still wasn't really listening, then during a practice match he was losing he did what anybody would do when losing a fight, he figured out a way to win. By poking his 5 year old opponent in the eye really hard. So after a brief consultation with the coach, the decision was made that he wouldn't be wrestling anymore this year. I think we'll try to put him in again next year.
Easter was pretty mellow, we dyed eggs the day before, then went to a Log Flume Heritage Site to do some geocaches in the area. The heritage site was really cool, the two pictures I've taken since my birthday are both of the kids standing in a log flume in the pouring rain. We then went to our friend Shane's house for a BBQ but Faith and the kids were both asleep in the car, and Shane's son was just being put down for a nap, so we decided to bag it. We did a couple more geocaches in Colville and then drove home. The sun shined for three days here last week, so everybody at work thinks it's time for spring burning even though there's still snow once you get out of town a little bit. They've never burned in April before, and there's actually more snow now than there was at this time last year, but why they let pesky facts like that get in their way. As such, they ordered a plane so we can fly the district to look at some of our burn units. Why fly to look at them? Because there's too much snow to drive to them, duh. Yay, tax dollars!
