I've decided to finally get my Eagle Scout award! But I was told by the Boy Scout Council that I have to start all the way back in Cub Scouts again. Ha ha! Just kidding. No, my church calling is the Webelos Den Leader. This past Saturday we went on a hike to pass off some requirements. These boys are fun but crazy. Lots of talk about video games. I almost want to tell them, "Stop playing video games! Get out while you still can!!"
Here are some quality photos of the hike.
The first one at the top is me with the four Webelos in my den. We all made walking sticks that morning for the hike. They used them mainly for hitting things and people. If any of you have read Lord of the Flies then you might think the kid in yellow with the glasses looks like Piggy! No one pushed him off a cliff though.
This second picture is of the whole group. The girl is the daughter of the Pack Leader.
And here we have a lovely fire that I had to monitor the entire time. The last thing I wanted was a brush fire. In fact, that field behind us is a cotton field. Not the most flame-resistant piece of land.
One more thing: if anyone can tell me what Webelos means, you get a gold star for today! I found out, for the first time, just a few months ago!
