I Love a Man in Uniform. . .

Scouts

. . .or, two little men, to be exact. Kellen and Kerrick started Webelos and Cub Scouts (respectively) a few weeks ago, and have quickly gotten up to speed on the Cub Scout Motto, the Cub Scout Promise and the Law of the Pack. All of which I should be able to recite myself after hearing Shawn quiz them each evening at the dinner table. (But don’t hold me to it.) Some awesome father-son bonding is going on around here as hikes and campouts are planned, badges and pocketknives are being earned and handbooks are read at bedtime. Shawn even found his old Boy Scout uniform at his parents’ house a few weeks ago, and the boys took turns trying it on and asking him all about his scouting experiences. Aside from sewing on badges and ironing shirts, I’m content to stand aside and watch the guy energy kick into high gear. (Although somehow I’ve also been pressed into service to make a potato salad for an upcoming family hike and picnic, and there is now an app on my iPod Touch called BragVest, which allows each scout to track the activities they’ve completed and the badges they’ve earned.) You know what they say (and if they don’t, they should): Behind every good Boy Scout is a. . .well, a mom who loves him. 🙂
