Since this week was jam packed with fun, I split it into three parts. You can read part 1 here if you missed what we did over the weekend. Come back later this week for part 3!
Monday (6/12) was the first day of Cub Scout Day Camp. We got up super early to be at the meeting place by 7:15am and Daniel came into our room with his eye crusted shut. I knew it was pink eye. Thankfully Adrian was able to take the day off (and work some from home) so AJ, Zak and I could still go to camp. We arrived early and I was a little overwhelmed with all of the activity, but also excited for the day. I dropped Zak off at the sibling circle and then walked with AJ's den for the day.
We got home and Daniel was doing much better. He had been given the OK to go to camp the next day. He did have his last baseball game of the season that night, but he missed it to rest and let his eye recover. We had an easy dinner of leftovers, restocked our packs and headed up for an early bedtime. It was an amazing but exhausting day!!
Tuesday (6/13) We got up early again for day 2 of day camp and Daniel's eye was just about back to normal so he got to join us for the day. I decided to walk with his den the whole day just to keep an eye on him and his eye (plus he had a fun schedule for the day!) We got to camp, dropped Zak off at the sibling circle, dropped AJ off to his den and got settled in with Daniel's den for the day. Unfortunately the day started with a severe thunderstorm coming thru the area so we had to seek shelter for about 30 minutes until the all clear was given.
When we finally got started, we headed to wood crafting. We had a great time making a penny hockey table together. My fingers took a little bit of a beating, but it was worth it. When we finished up there, we headed to the archery range, the thing Daniel was looking most forward to. We had a little more lightening so we had to stay inside for a history and safety lesson before getting out to shoot. Daniel had a blast using the bow and arrow and did pretty well once he got started, finishing up with two bulls eyes!
We got in the car and heard all about AJ and Zak's days. Zak loved hiking up and down the hill and being in the creek. He said it was the best time walking in the water and catching fish. AJ told us about what he did all day. He started at geocaching which didn't really work that well because the satellites were down. But he's super interested in learning more about it and hoping he can go caching with Dad soon. After that, they learned how to make a tent/shelter which he enjoyed and told me all about. After lunch, he had a troop meeting, which was basically introducing them to how a Boy Scout meet runs and what they will be doing as a Boy Scout. They also learned how to start a fire in this meeting, which was the highlight of AJ's day, especially since he made fire with flint and steel!
