Mark is getting old! Sometimes it's hard to believe that he is almost 9 years old. Mark is a great oldest child because he is a great student and athlete. He sets a great example for his younger siblings by reading his scriptures and knowing so much about the gospel. The only thing we wish for Mark is more kindness toward his siblings, but hopefully that will come with age and maturity. Here are a few things that Mark has been doing lately.
Mark has been playing basketball. He and his two best friends are on the same team and that is all that matters for Mark. He really has a ton of fun out on the court and he is also pretty good! Randy is his coach and they love practicing together. Here is a short video of Mark playing and a few pictures. Mark is #5.

That makes me the most proud of him!

Mark is in Cub Scouts and this week he earned his wolf badge. He actually earned it last month, but they accidentally forgot about it and didn't have the badge to give. So he was lucky and received it at the Blue & Gold Banquet this month. In our pack, the boys have to find a wolf hidden in whipped cream. Mark was a little nervous about this, but afterward told me the whipped cream was SO good! He loves Cub Scouts and has great leaders. I can't wait for him to join Bears and be with me!
