What I Love About Drake April 2016
This is actually the saddest thing we had to do this year and that was put Gizmo to sleep. He got cancer that spread and we could not stop it. The vet was really nice and let us spend almost 5 hours with him playing and loving on him before we had to put him down. We got to feed him a cheeseburger, talk him for a walk and just let him know how much we cared for him. We stayed until his heart stopped beating so he did not have to spend one second alone.
The happiest thing we did this year so far was go to Midevil Times together. We had never been and on a whim we decided to spend the money and go enjoy ourselves for a night. We had the green knight, which only made sense and even though our knight did not win, we had a great time of dinner and torment :)
Weight: 61.1 lbs
About once a month our church has tried to start doing something with the younger kids. This month you went to the "farm" and practiced your archery skills and fishing skills. You had a blast and came back closer to your leaders and the other kids in your Sunday school class. This was also the last month for AWANA. You almost made it through your book but had 4 more versus to say. What bite was if I would not have been sick one day you would have completed it and earned your book reward that you really, really wanted to get before we moved. :( Feeling disappointed.
Things you Enjoyed:
This month you have been like a walking musical. You go around singing all sorts of crazy songs and dancing like a crazy boy. You love the Whip and Nae Nae song/dance and do it everywhere we go just impromptu. Between that and going back to the song "What does the fox say?" we have reached a weird point in our home. I do enjoy watching you do the dances and it make me laugh alot by being weird.
When you are not being a walking musical, you want to play sports (baseball mainly), your x-box (call of duty ghosts, and baseball/hockey), playing board games (chutes and ladders, game of life, candy land and connect four), or playing baby with me (I pretend to be a baby that is always 3 years old and you are the daddy taking care of me). Baby is probably absolute favorite thing to play and you get really mad at me if i do not want to play it and you have to pick something else. I dont know why you like this game so much or even how it got started ( I think I was doing a "Bobby" impression that a comic use to do and you fell in love with it), but you can spend hours literally playing this game.
You did quit a bit with your troop this month. The manly man even which consisted of hiking, zip lines, building fires/fire pits, hatchet throwing, outdoor cooking, archery and rope walking and tree climbing I think was your favorite thing you did though. I was a little ticked off because you lost my camping backpack and your brand new Dallas Stars lunch box, but eventually I will get over it. You though had a blast and spent days telling me about it. The other really exciting thing you did was going to practice your archery skills. I don't think you ever get tired of shooting arrows.
Generation Outdoors: Every single thing our GO group put on the scheduled was rained out all month long! it was quite depressing.We were to go camping on 2 separate occasions and both fell through, were were going to rock climb, fell through. Then we were going to do archery, bust as well. Just was not a good month for GO.
