I have a son who's moving up to Boy Scouts soon. He's in a den with a great bunch of kids: friendly, helpful, good students (and I mean that they all work hard at school and behave, not that they are all A students or speak six languages), polite, just all around fun and nice to be around.
This weekend several of them got together to camp out and play in the woods and 'rough it.' There are five of them out there together. We dropped them off with their sleeping bags, clothes, MREs (they LOVE those things...lol) and water. They were camping close enough to one's house that they could easily walk over and sleep inside if they got too cold, but they were adamant that they were sleeping outside (no tents taken). Temps were in the 40s and BEAUTIFUL during the day and down in the 20s at night this weekend.
I know they are making memories that will last forever and I know they are having an absolute blast.
I cannot wait to hear all about it later today. :)
