I survived another pack meeting! I will admit to feeling a little nervous. With only a few minutes before the designated start time I was sitting by myself while my children were playing mostly quietly in the nursery. Fortunately, three boys showed up (for which I was very grateful). The grand total was about 20 people counting families and other leaders that showed up.
This would be the slightly rearranged layout of the cultural hall (when I showed up this afternoon I discovered that some basketball players this morning had moved everything out of the way and then tried to put them back)
I have been trying to do better about displaying what we have been working on this month. Indian picture drawing and the solar system- how is that for a contrast.
These are the tee-pees that we made when discussing Native American culture.
I found these cutouts at the scout office this afternoon when I went to pick up awards. To the side you can see the targets that I made for the bows and arrows.
This cactus was another scout office find. When I was helping out with the day camp a couple of months ago, I had been given a tour of the closet. I remembered the cactus, but couldn't remember what else they had. Apparently, no one else did either- I was told I was the first person to borrow them since probably the original activity they had been made for.
And this picture is simply to show that I can be my father's daughter. I borrowed a friend's boots for the occasion and putting them on reminded me a lot of my father. I was probably in high school or college the first time that I ever saw him in anything other than a pair of boots. Nowadays he has taken up running and is often in some nice running shoes training for the next Epic Relay. After spending the evening in a pair of boots, I am not sure why it took him so long to switch over. I take more after my father's mother, who was teased about being a member of the Blackfoot tribe on account of running around barefoot all the time and the resultant shade that her feet were.
Now to figure out next month's pack meeting... (hopefully it will have a better turn out).
