Cub Scouts, unlike the boy scouts, end their official year with summer break. So tonight, the Cub O Matic was called into service. Chef earned his third year scouting service pin, a few more belt loops, pins, and a new slide for his neckerchief.
On the other hand, the boy scouts meet year round. I'm glad they do, because Game Teen thrives on routine.
His first camping trip with the new troop was a resounding success. The leaders involved know that he responds better if they make demands rather than requests. He did very well, even participating in a substantial portion of the ten mile hike. (I honestly had my doubts)
Game Teen has a very dry sense of humor. It's rarely on display, but he decided to share with those camping this weekend. When the Scoutmaster told the boys they'd be hiking to the dam on the reservation, Game Teen piped up with "We're going on a Dam hike?"
This explains the picture I got via email today "The 1st Annual Damn Hike at MacGregor Smith". He definitely was channeling his Gramps, the hiker.
I'm wondering what the kid is going to come up with when they spend a week camping this summer!
