100 Days of Scouting - Day 41

Woke up to a full day of activities at the Webelos Outdoor Weekend.  Nothing like bacon and eggs over a camp propane fire!  After breakfast, it was time to start rotating through the activity stations.  The boys got the chance to learn some Boy Scout skills from local troops.  They worked on knots, campsite set-up, tent set-up, first aid, and fire-starting.  The rain changed plans for the obstacle course, but it turned out even better when they moved it under the shelter and played some games.  They sat in a circle, feet-in, and passed a coffee container around.  They also divided into two large groups and had to fit everyone onto a tarp.  Then they'd fold it in half and see if they could still fit on it.  Then fold in half again!  It was fun to watch.

Of course, the kids just love to be out camping and practicing their Scouting skills.  Even with a lot of rain, they still had a great time.  Ethan and I left after the campfire program to head home.  His birthday was the next day, and he wanted to be with the whole family for it.  No argument from dad!  We had a great time together!
