Singing Tree and Parade!

Doyle directs in the rain-Hey,they won the trophy and got their picture in the paper!

Last week was a busy one here at Hobe Sound. The Singing Tree performed 4 times and we had our annual town parade. I put 49 pictures on Facebook, but decided to put a few on my blog. Lydia waves at the crowd on the school float. It started raining when they were almost done-what a mess!

Samuel turned 11 today! We celebrated his birthday last night because the kids and Doyle have a big practice tonight. This was his year to have a family party, so it was just us. He wanted cupcakes for his cake, so I put them in the shape of a tree.

He also wanted to light his candles. All of my kids love the idea of lighting candles-not sure why.

Joseph watching Samuel open his gifts.

His big gift this year was a DSI-something he has been wanting for a long time.

He had a lot of fun figuring out all of the features.

Today I took cupcakes in to his class.

We played a board game together as a family before going to bed last night-we knew this week would be a bit hectic, and felt like it was important to spend some time to celebrate his special day.
