...and now, for some good news...

Friday, March 20, 2009

Once again, I had Scout Pack Meeting duty last night.. Now, my feelings about these events have never been a secret. But, are you ready?? It was actually fun!! The Pack Master, an old Eagle Scout named Otis who is actually a friend, really loves this stuff, so even when I'm grinning and bearing it, I can't help but get a kick out of how much fun he has with all of it, and last night Otis outdid himself. It was called "Relay Night" and consisted of all the different den levels competing against each other in different types of relay races...turkey feather races, marshmallow on spoons, balloons between your legs, t-shirt relays.. But the BEST of all was the competition for the Windbag Cup. It was a tournament in which each den made up a team. Two teams stood around a table, one on each side, and the goal was to be the team that "blew" a ping pong ball off the table on the other team's side.. Hands behind the back, nothing but "wind" being used.. It was fun to watch, fun for the kids.

    Such FUN!! hahaha!! I'd be right in the thick a' things... oh, right, LOL! I'm not IN the troop!! heehee!!

    All of these games sound like a BLAST, only... I'm not sure what a t-shirt relay is... hmmm... is that like a sack race, only two people in one t-shirt?!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    ooh-ooh, I do know what Janet's talking about... those cotton balls on the spoon races are HILARIOUS!

    The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes,
    flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you.
    Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes,
    certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.

    there is hope! So glad it was a good, fun time!

    Our den needs a new leader, entering 3rd year, needing 3rd leader. They are all looking at me... NO Way! I would want those boys to behave, and they would not like that! Besides it's not like I've got a lot of free time, or organizational skills that would encourage me to create spread sheet so of requirements.!

    Always nice when something we aren't looking forward to turns out to be fun. I've used that blowing game with my K kids at church only we use cotton balls.
