And he LOVES it.
SO much. Brian has taken on the primary parental role on this endeavor and they came back from a Pack meeting and he shared that Jeremy looked at him in the middle of the meeting and said, "This is the best day ever. I love being a Boy Scout!"
When we got his uniform, he wore it all the freaking time. He even had to call both sets of grandparents to tell them all about it.
He is really thrilled about going camping, so we pulled out my old tent (covered in dust) and guess what, it still works! Unfortunately, his camping trip was cancelled due to snow back in the fall, but not to worry, he has another one scheduled for March.
Violet has also become a huge fan. I am fairly certain that she thinks she is also a Cub Scout. When I am available to attend meetings, she comes along and they are sweet enough to let her play the games/activities with them.
I do think it is funny that the moms bring the activities even though the den is led by the dads. Something seems off about that. Brian and I have researched some pretty awesome activities for our days, so get excited about seeing our fun times in a future post. Hint: slime and explosions are on the menu!! Oh, and we are hard at work on our Pinewood Derby car, so that mess will also be coming soon!
We are really glad that Jeremy has found a fun activity that he enjoys. I wish he loved sports in the same way, but alas, that was not to be. Though, he does really want to place ice hockey - what?! I think we will stick with scouts. :)
