Boy Scout Camp Out Report

Well, the phone rang at the ungodly hour of 6:30 am this morning. They guys were at the door and couldn't get in because I had it chained from the inside. Wes woke up at 4:30 am and soon realized a thunder storms was coming in, so he whisked himself, their gear and Eric into the car as quickly as possible.

Wes of course, grabbed a shower and crawled into bed and slept for another hour or so. I was awake. Oh well. So much for sleeping in.

Glad they're back from camping. Good times had by all. Eric earned is permission token to carry a knife and has started working on his tenderfoot requirements, and has been assigned a patrol to be in. Most of the boys in his patrol and home schooled and the leader is the Dad of a home school family, so that's encouraging.

I always enjoy hearing about your life.

I went to a monastery this weekend and put all of your names on the prayer list I gave them. Also on the list for the monastics that came to my church today from another monastery!

Remember that many people love you! :)

Good for Eric! We're a Scouting family Orthodox troop in Seattle. DH is Scoutmaster, I'm Mrs. Scoutmaster, and DS13 is a Star. DS7 is in Cubs in our school pack.

Congrats on the Totin' Chip, and good luck with the Tenderfoot. FWIW, we posted copies of the Oath and Law all over the house to help DS memorize :-)
