School Days

Today is the first day of school for the boy, grade 7. We are hoping for a better year than last and we think he is up for the task. Lots of stuff going on with him this year, we start Fall Baseball this week and he was elected Patrol Leader last week. In our Troop you are Patrol Leader for 6 months but this group plans out the whole year, camp outs, special trips, activities, summer camp...should be a great experience for him.

One of his favorite things this summer was the Leaders In Training Camp at the YMCA, they learned how to be Leaders for the YMCA Summer Camps and if nominated (which he was) by the staff you can apply as a CIT next year. He was the youngest chosen for next year and is very excited about it. Between Catcher in baseball, Patrol Leader in Scouts and now future CIT he is well on his way to being that leader I was in my youth...Builds character and maturity and gives early grays!!!!

So to all you moms and dads with children of age: SCHOOLS IN FOR WINTER!!!!!! SCHOOLS NOW ALL OPEN, SCHOOLS IN FOREVER!!!!
