Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating a little with that title. However, we do have our share of scout stuff this weekend.
Henry has been working steadily towards his 1st class scout advancement. He needs to be a 1st class scout by March because otherwise he can't participate in a law merit badge. So part of our Friday night fun consisted of Henry and Dave learning how to do different kinds of lashings (binding sticks together). Then it was early to bed because Henry and I had to be up at 5AM to help out at the troop pancake breakfast. He was a dancing pancake, helped serve, and I made coffee. It was a busy morning.
Next I handed off the scouting baton to Dave, who took Seth to his last official webelos scout den meeting ever. They are put the finishing touches on their Arrow of Light they made for Seth's crossing over to Boy Scouts next weekend. Henry will get to participate in the ceremony!
Tomorrow Henry and Dave will be working on the last advancement (orienteering) Henry has to do to advance to First Class Scout!
We're so proud of our Scouts!
