Scout Camp

The Boy returned from Cub Scout camp yesterday.  It was two nights and three days, without his parents.  He shot BB guns, earned his whittling chip which entitles him to carry a pocket knife, and did archery.  He also did some craft.  I'm sure there is a lot more, but he hasn't shared yet.  He came home very dirty, so we spent the evening at the pool to clean him up.

While he was gone, his sister admitted that she missed him.


Dad is a broken computer,
Fixing all the glitches in the software.
Dad is an intense game of Risk,
Conquering the world.
Dad is a blue Hyundai,
Driving crazy all around town.
Dad is an extensive library,
Reading thousands of books.
Dad is a tired couch,
Taking a nap.
Dad, you are a world of color to me.

Love, Sloane
