Had a good time at Archery yesterday. Both Ian and Seth got a few bullseyes at 20- and 10-yard targets. Before that, Everyone went over to get this year's Christmas tree. After archery, everyone helped put the lights on and decorate the tree. Linker went down to Falls Road Running store to pick up his bib for next Saturday's Celtic Solstice.
Today after church, Linker went to get a haircut and then the snow started to fall. Linker and the boys went sledding down the hill at the boys' school. They spent a good hour there before going home to dry out and warm up. As of this afternoon, we had about four inches of snow.

Had a somewhat quiet weekend. Yesterday Linker and the boys had another fun morning doing indoor archery. Ian continues to do well at 20 yards and Seth is becoming more consistent at 10 yards. The afternoon was spent mostly around the house with one quick trip to the baseball card shop for a case for an autograph card that Ian had received in one of his packs.
Today after church, Linker and the boys went to the Walters Art Museum. They enjoyed making their names with hieroglyphics and writing on papyrus. They also enjoyed some of the old favorites as playing a quick game of chess in the Knight's hall and looking at all the insects in the treasure room.

Had rather full weekend. Yesterday, Linker and the boys had indoor archery in the morning. Linker ran the lawnmower out of gas and turned the outside faucets off in the afternoon. Deb and the boys went to a Toby Mac concert last night that they really enjoyed.
Today Linker started the day with the Honeygo Family 5K which he did in around 23 minutes, with which he was quite pleased. The big change this year was starting at Perry Hall High School instead of Honeygo Run Park.
In the afternoon, Linker and the boys went to go see Thor: The Dark World over at the restored Senator Theater. The theater looked really nice after its makeover and addition of three extra screens on the sides. They also went by and got some baseball cards after the movie. The rest of the evening was spent watching football and the final NHRA drag race of the season in Pomona.
