Found another old photo of me at fifteen. I was a Ranger (Girl Guides) for a couple years. I'm thinking I should stick my 'two' badges on here somewhere. This layout was for the 'Kansas' scrapmap challenge at

In other news, the boys were at the swimming pool from noon to six on Sunday, doing their Bronze Medallion. It's happening for the next three Sundays. Daniel needs to practice a couple times this week as he was a minute slow on the lap swim. I think his arms are just too short to pull him through the water as fast as the bigger kids. Poor guy. He's really hoping he will grow soon. He's sprouted an inch since Christmas, but he needs a couple more inches to loose the 'shortest kid in Grade 9' title.
A new 'Play n Trade' gaming store opened in the mall. The boys (especially Daniel) are so excited. It's a franchise opened by the Mum of a girl they go to school with (since Kindergarten). They get 10% off prices for each 'A' they get on their report card; thus the reason behind Daniel's greater excitement over Duncan.
They also get to trade in old equipment, so they're taking all their old gaming stuff, including an old Xbox, and getting credit towards new stuff. My Daniel's turned into an electronic selling monster. I hope he doesn't trade anything he later regrets.
He's even trying to sell his brothers and sisters stuff. The battles we have had in the last few days. Oi!
First he asked his sister if she ever played her Gameboy and she made the mistake of saying 'not often'
Then he found a Gameboy recharger and put it on the table with all his other sellable stuff. It disappeared and later turned up in Breanna's room. Turned out it wasn't Daniel's recharger; it was Duncan's... another battle, till I stepped in.
Now he's phoning his friends trying to find stuff he thought was junk six months ago and now realizes he could get credit for.
Last Saturday he ended up taking in one Gameboy (his), 4 gameboy games and an Xbox game. And that was $70 credit. That's unbelievable to me. How much can you sell an old Gameboy for? (without the recharger. LOL)
