We've been fighting with Emily for the past months about the scraggly state of her hair. It was a battle every morning to get it combed, and she would never wear a pony tail or anything to help keep it neat. She finally made the decision to get it cut, so I immediately called the beauty college and made an appointment. We had about 8-10 inches cut off, and she looks cute with her new bob. The girl that cut her hair was really excited when Emily said that she could keep her hair and use it for a "coloring" experiment.
Last weekend we worked on the boys' hiking merit badge. They have to do 5 ten-mile hikes, and one 20-mile hike! This was their 3rd 10-miler. We started at our apartment, and did a "exploring Rexburg" tour. Emily got tired after about 4 miles, so she and I walked about another mile back to our home while the guys kept hiking. The weather was beautiful and we all had a good time. Erik got a giant blister on the bottom of one foot, but other than a few other small blisters, that was the only mishap on the trip.
My sister invited us over for Easter dinner. We had a delicious meal, then a big egg hunt for the kids. To make it fair, the kids all divided up the eggs so that they each got the same amount... they are such good kids!!! Then we played a fun word game we made up using Scrabble tiles. I especially enjoyed it because I won!!!
