Katie's New Purse

After seeing Katie's well-loved purse in tatters, I decided to make her a sling from Amy Butler's array of purse patterns. Here is Marnie showing it off before I ship it away. School starts on Monday down at BYU, so she has to have it soon!

Philmont COPE Course

I finally got the chance the do the COPE Course at Philmont. The first year I was too chicken, and the second was too full. But it was worth the wait. We did low COPE for the first two days and high elements the last day. The series was incredible. Never thought I could do that 35' up.

Construction Mess!

Our pole building construction is sure messy! The excavator has been here working to clear trees and stumps. We won't be burning due to a burn ban (and no measurable rain for 70+ days), but we can do that later. The next step is to grade the area with rocks.
