Quality Mom/Son Time= {Scouting}

I had the opportunity to be Spencer's Bear Den Cub Scout Leader for the last 7 months or so. I was a Rookie at this whole scouting thing but I think I'm finally getting the hang of it all....just in time for Spencer to Leave our Bear Den and move on to Webelos! ....boo hoo... I really have enjoyed my time with him & seeing him around his peers. (It's given me a whole new appreciation for spence seeing how ALL 9 year old boys think & behave.)
Spence earned his Bear award this month before his birthday, so this past Wednesday's Pack Meeting he got to show his courage by going into the Bear Cave!....& did he live it up.

Our Pack has a cute lil' thing they do for the boys who get their Bear Award. The boys have to go into the "Bear Den" & tackle the Bear (their Dad) & come out holding a Bear Claw.
We saw shoes fly over the cave and the "Bear" even tossed him just above the top of the cave to give us a good chuckle. But luckily Spence made it out alive with his Bear Claw in hand & a smile on his face. He came out all tore up...as you can see by his shirt. (I was videotaping so I didn't get any pictures during or after...between my active husband & son I didn't catch them both together in time.)
Congrats Spence on another accomplished Scouting Year!

Ah...Good ol' Scouting...fun stuff.
I better get used to all this being that we have 3 boys.

So cute! I'm totally scared of Scouts. Ezra goes in next month and I have a feeling it's going to be fun but busy. Tim's such a good Dad! You can tell he really loves to play with his kids. You two are just the best parents around! ;)
