Dirty as can be...

I thought little girls were supposed to stay clean and not look like this? ;o)

Here is Evie, in all her glory, before we changed her to go to the crossover ceremony. She was mad that I was breaking out the wipes to clean her off... but her protest was so lacking, that I had to stop for a photo op!

Proud Cub Scout Parents...

The scouting program is such an important piece of a child's life. It is something that Cute Hubs and I whole heartedly believe in. It not only gives children opportunities, goals, and life lessons, but it is also a place where the whole family can enjoy these achievements together.

Before having children, Cute Hubs stared and was Cub Master of two separate Cub Scout Packs, and ever since we had our first boy, let alone all three, he has been chomping at the bit to get them into scouting.

This year, Hubs was a Co- Den leader with a fellow friend, and he and Rory loved it. The other kids in the den grew as friends, learned together, and flourished under Cute Hubs and the other leader.  

Tonight was the "pay off" for all of the sweat and tears that we put into the pack, into the den, and into the boys. Tonight our Wolves crossed over to becoming Bears.

We are so proud of Rory, but not just him, we are proud of all the boys, of all the hard work, and also of the parents for making it happen. These boys and their parents worked hard to earn their ranks, and it melts my heart to know we will get to help them all thrive next year as well.

Next year will be double fun for us since Arden is going to be entering into the Tigers. I am excited to say that I will be volunteering to lead the Tigers, and can't wait. I already have so many ideas!

Here are a few photos from the weekend of all the boys. Sorry for the poor quality, they were taken at night, and I didn't want to use the flash.

Cub Scout Adventure

This weekend I was lucky enough to take Rory on a Cub Scout Camping Trip to Camp Daniel Boone. It was quite the adventure, and I am pleased to say we are both back, with all eyes, limbs, and digits intact :o)

Here are a few photos of our trip:

It started with an early morning arrival and fog:

After checking in and setting up camp, we sat and watched some sparrows fly all over:

First stop, BB Guns:

Then Archery:

Where we found out that Rory isn't quite the Robin Hood he thought:

He even built a boat for the Regatta!

Lastly we attended the evening campfire (sorry for the cell phone photo!):

Rory's Pinewood Derby Race...

He did really good for his first time! He was third in his Den, but didn't place in the top three for the Wolves, so he didn't get to move on to the Pack finals... here are a few photos of "Left Lane Cruiser"(his car) and a video that Rory took himself at the race!

(Rory's car is the Yellow car with the red stripe down it and the driver's head popping up).

Cub Scout PopCorn Sales...

I know that many of you were in the Scouts, wether it be Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Brownies, etc. You know the value of the scouting experience, and you also know the cost... well to offset the cost, there are fundraisers, and for our pack the only one is the Fall Pop Corn Sales.

Over 70% of the proceeds from the popcorn sales goes straight to our scout pack and dens. It helps pay for things like Space Camp, Summer Camps, the badges, and all the costs through the year. These popcorn fundraisers are what make cub scouts affordable for everyone, and prevents our Pack from having dues.

That being said, you should click here and order a few boxes of popcorn or other goodies from Rory... if you don't like popcorn, you can order popcorn for our military troops over seas!

Here are a few shots of our den marketing this awesome fundraiser:
