Scouting was a big part of our lives this year. Both Jeff and Mark were active in Cub Scouts under the leadership of Bob and Doris Jefferson. This year Jeff moved up to Boy Scouts and both he and Rod enjoyed the hikes. Both boys made "pinewood derby" cars during January and raced them. Mark won 2nd place. We had a snow in February and the boys enjoyed sledding. Jeff and Mark participated in both basketball and track with the RAs. We took the Webelos scouts (Jeff's group) up for a hike at Bent Tree. In May, Rod's Mother, sister Dorothy and Jim visited us and we made a trip to Bent Tree. Rod enjoyed celebrating his 40th birthday in July by going on a hike on the Appalachian Trail with Jeff and the Boy Scouts. In late July, Brenda and Rod went with the couples Welcome Sunday School class on a trip to Highlands, NC. In August, Rod and Jeff went on a three-day Scout campout on Cumberland Island. Rod had become the photographer for Scout Troop 531 and took pictures for Marty Martin's and Mike McMahan's Eagle Courts of Honor. We enjoyed our traditional trip to Arkansas at Thanksgiving and the boys enjoyed the big pack of fireworks we picked up for the occasion.

Below are links to some images of that year.

We had a snow on February 19 which was deep enough to play in and enjoy.

March brought kite-flying weather for the Cub Scouts.

April brought wildflowers. Rod was keen on collecting closeup photos.
