On Saturday we loved watching Ava and Caleb at their soccer games. Caleb's enthusiasm is truly contagious and for him a goal was a goal no matter what team you are on--and he celebrated each time the ball hit the net! Ava has been playing for a while and for us it was great to see the confidence she has gained since we last watched her before our mission. What a treat to be a part of the grandkids activities.

The problem was that the Scott Duncan on the list of back up speakers is the counselor in the Stake Young Men's presidency which for us means--Andy needs to speak. I smiled on Thursday when the light bulb came on and I realized that Brother Hamlin didn't know that there are three Scott Duncan's in the Apple Valley Stake. Don't worry if we get another request for Grandpa to speak I will be sure to ask which Scott they mean!

Scott and I attended a student recognition assembly at the same time at Ruth's school. She was recognized as a Golden Scholar for maintaining all A's this year.

We celebrated Scott's birthday this evening at a Mexican food restaurant. The waitress surprised us with a treat and a song for Grandpa after a wonderful dinner. For being 69 I think he looks pretty good!
|Grandpa loved sharing his birthday treat!|

I loved these pictures of Perry and the other missionaries in his district. These are some of the best of times for missionaries when they come together for training, planning, encouragement, and goal setting. One thing I learned is that no matter what is happening our missionaries know how to have a good time especially when they all get together. I loved the wonderful senior couple who are also serving with them. I know they love Perry almost as much as we do! I know this because I loved our missionaries almost as much as we love our grandchildren!

The drought has taken it toll on our yard but we still had lots of great places to hide eggs for the grandkids to have their Easter egg hunt. Last year we had the Sister missionaries over to a ham dinner which was great--but this was even better--especially the next day when we had Easter dinner at Andy and Angela's house.

It was fun to have Andy and Angela and the kids over for a St. Patrick's Day dinner. Corned Beef and cabbage, green whipped jello, boiled potatoes, limeade, and Irish soda bread. We finished off the dinner with green frosted brownies. It is so great to be close to family again!
