Cub Scouts here we come!
We are joining the wonderful world of Cub Scouts (they are the younger version of Boy Scouts, in case you were wondering). My son is super-excited about this and I am….hesitantly excited. I say that because I haven’t been involved in Scouts before so I am not sure how time consuming/money consuming it is going to be (buying a uniform for example…)
The things I’m excited about are:
- the smile on my son’s face as he plans all the badges he will earn
- his excitement about being in the same troop (den? group?) as his friend
- the opportunities he will have to learn about fun new things
- their emphasis on good manners and helping others
Here are a few of the badges he could earn. There’s one he’s REALLY excited about that I didn’t find on this list though: video games!! *shakes head* can’t believe they have a badge for video games, lol!
He will have his first meeting next week and he can hardly wait! I’ll let you know how it goes, and post a pic of him in his uniform once he gets one 🙂 .
Does anyone have any opinions on Cub Scouts? Any pointers??
Check out the Cub Scout update about our first meeting!
