I knew this day would come...




I knew I wouldn't be able to dodge the draft.
3 boys.
Destiny.

Before I really thought about scouting, I was guilty of not appreciating what a great program it is for boys. Have you read up on it? Seriously, if every boy in this country went through the scouting program, our world would be a different place. A better place. No doubt. So, yes, I'm a believer. Yes, I wear my uniform with pride. I am a Den Leader, hear me ROAR! Ha, I sound like those obsessive scouters I used to laugh at (I'm not proud of that)--now look at me.

Brigham could barely contain his enthusiasm. Would I have his patches sewn on before den meeting? As you can see, I was so worried about it not looking straight that I froze. Look who's sewing now? Yep, that's why I married him. I know, who cares if it doesn't look perfect? I know, I know, I know. In all honesty, Ben wanted it to look perfect even more than I did (he's a loyal scout), so I told him to have at it. I hovered. Annie did, too. It was a group effort.

There's got to be some badge for that...

That is awesome! When Blake is in Scouting, I am in trouble. I have no clue about Scouts. Now I know who I will call! :)

So cool, Nette!!
You have to let me know what activities you guys do. We are "Lone scouters" here--which means there isn't a group anywhere near us, so we do it on our own--David is the leader, but I need to help out more. I need some fun ideas.
The boys LOVE wearing their scout shirts--isn't it fun?!
