Mom to the Left

I'm a mom who tends to live just to the "left" of most of the people around me here in Indiana.

Yesterday we spent the day at our district's annual Scout-o-Rama. All of the Cub Scout Packs and Boy Scout Troops from our entire district were there. In addition to being a fun day, it was a milestone day for my 11yo. He received his Arrow of Light award (highest honor in Cub Scouts)and "bridged up" into Boy Scouts. As the den leader, it was nice to watch the boys I'd worked with for years receive this honor. Here are 3 of my 4 boys after receiving the Arrow of Light award. (The fourth boy had a scheduling conflict.)

Here's my son crossing the rope bridge that was the symbolic bridge to Boy Scouts.

And now they stand as Boy Scouts at the end of the bridge with their new Scoutmaster and one of the older Boy Scouts.

My oldest son was also involved with helping to run the event. He did the cooking for his troop. Here he is making chicken and noodles.

And here he is (on the left) with a boy from another troop serving as emcees at the campfire circle in the evening. (The audience is off camera to the left.)

    Looks like everyone is dressed the part for boy scouts. Best of luck!

    Do your best,
