I was finally feeling fully prepared for that Tot Lot and it was just me and Peter today. :)
But no one else showed up. Then it turns out no other families brought their little ones. So I was off the hook for most of the day and got to spend time doing what I'd really wanted to do: spend time with David!
Next up: obstacle course. They called it mini-Philmont. David had a buddy and away they went through the course. They did very well, even managing to be one of the first teams to quickly get both of the partners through a hula hoop. They stood back-to-back and lifted the hoop up and over themselves whereas all the previous teams individually stepped through the hoop. Clever boys...
After lunch they had a carnival. The boys earned tickets for each of their dens. At the end of the day the den with the most tickets got first dibs on a bunch of popsicles.
While getting popsicles a fire engine pulled up into the park. After closing ceremonies the kids happily got soaked. I lost track of David pretty quickly. There were a few times I spotted him...
So we're all sunburned with sun-bleached hair. And tired, we're all unbelievably tired. But it was a great week and is David very excited to start earning his awards, belt loops, and pins.
Welcome to Scouting, Dave!
