The LeBaron Bunch, kinda like The Brady Bunch only BeTTeR

"Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. but the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
George S. Patton, U.S. Army General, 1912 Olympian

What.... 13 years old?



Yup!!! 13....Eaph said just the other day, "First falling on the ice and getting stitches and now this broken 13th year has been very unlucky so far....well, I did get my Eagle, and I guess that was lucky!" (Which is another post for another day:)

For his party we used the GPS. The boys would find the coordinate and end up at one of their houses and their mom would have them do a service project. Most of the projects were raking up leaves as you can see. It ended up being a very fun day, plus it made everyone feel good because they did service too!!!

Another fun birthday I did with a GPS was for Mr. L. I hid birthday presents all over town and he found them by following the different coordinates on his GPS. It was really fun. The funnest part was when my friend, (ahem...Lorilee) replaced the DVD gift and wrapped up some lingerie in it's place, and made it look like the original DVD package...very inventive indeed...and hilariously unforgettable.

LOVE THIS!! All of it! I love the idea of scavenger hunt/service project!! Melis is turning 13 in two months...I'm thinking a girl version. she'll prolly roll her much that they might get stuck in the back of her head. Then again, she'll also be smiling BIG at the end of the day. I just know it!
Miss you!!
