Happy new year! I can't believe 2010 is over already. I had so many plans... Well you can't live in the past, so on to this year. I plan on spending alot of time with the kids camping, hiking and I guess just basically scouting, working in the hangar and being a farmer. So you could say, basically the same as last year.
Noah and Rowen are working on finishing up the last few requirements that they have for Weblos before they transition into Boy Scouts. You can see them here converting a funny story into a play that they will put on at the Blue and Gold for everyone's enjoyment. Noah still has his Sportsman and his Readyman to complete before April. We have our first camping trip of the new year coming up at the end of the month. Look for a post around the beginning of Feb.All is well on the farm. We have lost one hive of bees so far and the chickens are not laying but other than that everything else is doing very well. Our two pigs have more than doubled in size and continue to root up the garden. We are hoping that they will find all the slugs, grubs and larvae of everything that has been eating our garden. The pigs also share the barn with our cows and goat. We look forward to butchering these two sometime this summer and one of the steers next fall.
This is the Assa de Socorro 206 just after the floats were installed. With the additional height the 206 commands your notice when you walk in the hangar. It is a beautiful plane and will soon be done. Under Ian's leadership this plane has gone from an Alaskan wreck to an Amazon beauty that will be on the front line of bringing the gospel to the Amazon.
