Cub Scouts – the PACK experience

OK – for those friends who want to have a boy – newly married, or otherwise… this is the ultimate “boy” mom experience to share….. I wish I could do it justice, because you just had to be there. We (Schuyler & I) went to our first cub scout Pack meeting – and proud Pack 57 was surely no disappointment. Having been a brownie and 4H girl growing up on the farm, I love the community, environmental living and camping aspect to the scouts – – so we signed up! : )

It was awards night and the boys in all the groups, Tigers, Bobcats, Wolves & Weeblos all earned patches and beads and belt loops for the all the achievements and activities. They all were very excited about the first camping trip and spoke of the winter trip too – where the polar bears were all praised for braving it in the cold. The scout master was a great leader, enthusiastic and really kept things moving and fun – as the night was a long one with the boys coming up from each den.

They (the different dens came up one by one) to show their achievements…. shadow boxes they made to store the US Flag, “Green-up” activities and planting trees for Earth day (they gave all the boys a sapling to bring home and plant), just to name a few of the activities. Schuyler and his buddy Frankie were excited to get the patches and beads…. and Schuyler was mimicking the magic activities as they were showing them “on stage”… It was a good meeting, and we are looking forward to it.

There is this “staff of power” that the dens take turns decorating to share at the meeting and the excitement around this “team symbol” is really fun to watch! To those “super moms” that are trying not to over schedule their kids this is one activity that is worth the time and social and educational for our boys. : ) Next the car wash! Can’t wait for those photos!

Above are some special “brand” photos and one of Schuyler and his friends… just goofin’.
