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.
