Cub Scouts

Most of you already know, but in October, Aiden joined the Cub Scouts--and I was coerced into becoming the den leader for Aiden's den. I knew NOTHING about Scouting at the time, so it has been quite an adventure, to say the least!  Well, I am happy to report that a few weeks ago, Aiden and the rest of his fellow Tiger scouts earned their Tiger badges! I actually lead a mixed den of 2 different ranks, and my Wolf Scouts just earned their rank this week, which means my den of boys have all made rank and we get to have a fun summer of playing and exploring and just being rowdy. I am so proud of Aiden for sticking with Scouts and for earning his badge--and I'm proud of myself for tackling this adventure and learning so much over the past few months.

Me and my boys!


Aiden and his best bud, Jamie.


All of my Tiger cubs--what a rag-tag bunch!

He had to do a good deed to turn it over and sew it on his uniform--
he came home that night and loaded the dishwasher!
