Back to Scouts

We've had a bit of an extended vacation from Scouts.  It all started when our meeting place changed our meeting night.  We've been meeting on Mondays, which works for us.  Dale can get home from work a bit early, so we can have transportation to get there.

Suddenly, we were meeting on Wednesdays.  That did NOT work, as Dale couldn't get home in time for us to go.  Then, when we found a new location where we could meet on Mondays, we ended up with either car trouble, sick kids, or Dale had trouble getting out of work early.

The kids have been able to continue to do some Scout-related stuff.  Some camping, summer camp for William, Cross-over for the Cubs...  but it has been a long time since we've made it to an actual meeting.

Tonight, we did.  Oh, it is so nice to be back!

I didn't realize how much we've all missed the weekly stuff.  Connor and William both turned in completed Blue Cards for Emergency Preparedness (a merit badge they need for Eagle), and on our way home, plans were being made for some of the other Eagle-required badges.


Honestly, it was like coming home again.  I love our troop.  It was good to be back.

I'm glad it's working out for you to be back in Boy Scouts each week again. A good troop can make all the difference in the boys' progress. :)
