Tanner's 1st court of honor and scout camp

Tanner earned his Tenderfoot and his 1st aid merit badge at his 1st court of honor.
Pinning the mom's pin on me.

Tanner got to go to scout camp for the 1st time this year. They went to camp Grizzly. He got 6 merit badges. His dad got to go with him. Usually 11 year olds don't get to go to scout camp, but Tanner got to go since his dad did. He also finished his 2nd class and 1st class at camp so it was well worth his time. It better have been since they were gone over the 4th of July.

Star Wars

Garret has been on a huge Star Wars kick. He just loves it. It all started when he learned how to play the Xbox and his favorite game is Lego Star Wars. For his birthday he got a build a bear with a Darth Vader outfit and the Star Wars theme song in his foot. We have been watching the Star Wars movies as a family. We started with 4, 5 and 6 then watched 1,2 and 3. He was watching 5 and it finished and he came running up and stairs and said "Dad, dad, did you know that Darth Vader is Luke's father? and Han Solo kissed princess Leia again?" We had told him over and over again that Darth Vader was Luke's father, but I guess it didn't sink in until he heard Darth Vader say it in that deep throaty voice "Luke, I am your father". When we watched 2 (so the 5th movie we had watched) the words at the beginning of the movie started going across the screen and Garret started right in "A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away" (and no he can't read, he's just watched the movies too many times). He carries his light sabers around everywhere and tells us what color light saber every character has. Needless to say, he loves Star Wars.
