My favorite Bear Cub Scout



One of the most fortunate advantages to Julian's recent improvements is his return to scouting. This is my most favorite Bear Cub Scout in the whole world! He takes scouting so seriously and I am so proud of that!

Cub Scouting is so completely boy and so perfect for him. Camping, whittling, shooting off rockets, archery, popcorn, and a hundred other things entice boys to learn and demonstrate the core values of scouting.

We went to the scout shop today and bought all the necessary gear (shirt, belt, socks, hat, kerchef, patches, guide book, etc). He was so excited. He came home and layed it all out on the table and just sat and admired it all for a while.

I found this quote on Amy's website and thought it quite true:

There is something special about raising boys. While I’ve heard mothers of boys complain of mud, noise, and too much ruckus, I’ve never heard one complain of boredom.

Happy Monday!!

Cub Scouting is so much fun! My husband was Cubmaster for all the years that our son was a Cub Scout, and then they both moved up to Boy Scouts. I was a den mother until Matt got past Webelos. You're right...no boredom! I wish Matt had been able to finish out the work to earn his Eagle.

Bwahahahahahaha, that's so true.

We are a Cub Scout family here too! He's looking good.

Way to go, Julian! I'm sure it will be a great experience for him.

He looks great in his uniform! I am a big fan of Scouting. Chip and I are both involved in the pack here. Matthew knows that getting his Eagle is not optional! I know his brother is jealous... :)
