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