Our Big Bear.

Well, for those of you who don't know, Race LOVES scouts. He loves the program. It is laid out for him in a book, and all he has to do is the requirements set on the pages before him (which are mostly super fun, boy stuff), and check them off. He's all about checking stuff off. I think that's one of the reasons he loves Tae Kwon Do so much as well. He can visually see the goals, and works to accomplish it.

It's that simple.

Well Race has had a lot of fun with scouts lately.

  • He earned his Bear in December, and can't wait for two more weeks when he can start WEBELOS!

  • He and Daddy made a super cool looking car for the Pine Wood Derby. (It turned out it wasn't as fast as his last year's bat car, but he didn't care. He wanted a flame car and named it, Supernova. I love my little smarty pants!

  • He and I also made this cake for the auction at the Blue and Gold Banquet last week. And it sold for $140! I'm super proud!

The Cub Scout Program is so great. It builds character for boys today who don't get opportunities to do out-doorsie stuff anymore.

We can't wait for July when Witt will join us as a Wolf! He's already quite the little scout, and was thrilled to find out that one of his heroes Bear Grills was also a Boy Scout. :) He cracks me up.

The roots of scouting run deep for our family. I am so grateful that my boys are excited to carry on the traditions of it.
