THEY HELPED SET THE CHRISTMAS TREE UP YESTERDAY

My boys worked with my wife to get the Christmas tree up yesterday. I was working on some of the other decorations around the house while they did that. They really are at a great age for this kind of thing. It does not take near as long to get the Christmas stuff set up as it does for our Halloween... Sign in to see full entry.

MY BOYS ARE REALLY HAVING TO TWIST MY ARM ON THIS ONE

We were just out and about looking at Halloween stuff (Which everyone with any sense of enjoyment of life should be doing regularly right now) and my boys asked when we were going to put stuff out. I told them mom won't let us until next week. They weren't happy over that. Now I saw they unhappy... Sign in to see full entry.

TRYING TO EXPLAIN WHAT A SEIZURE IS TO THE KIDS

I had a very interesting experience today while out and about with the kids. I had my two boys and the daughter of some of our friends who I was watching for them. We were a the mall and stopped in the Lego Store. Right way I noticed a young man falling over and hurried over to see if I could help.... Sign in to see full entry.

THE MYSTERIOUS COOKIE CUTTER

My youngest son got a set of cookies cutters as a prize last week and he wanted to make cookies. Well today we made a batch and I went and dug out some other cookies cutters to use as well. One of them is a very odd shape and I have no idea at all as to what it is suppose to be. It almost looks like... Sign in to see full entry.

GETTING READY FOR HIS FIRST CAMPING TRIP

Today I am going to spend the day helping get my son ready for camp tomorrow. This will be his first camping trip. While this is not real camping, since the tents are already going to be set up and the food will be cooked for us, it still will be good for him. And if he stays active in Scouts, this...

I DON'T THINK I'VE EVER SEEN THEM THIS BEAT BEFORE

Both of my boys are really out of it tonight. I've never seen them come down this hard before. Of course all day they were playing with my oldest boy's friend who I was watching today. We are talking like eight hours straight of running around doing everything. As soon as they had a few minutes to... Sign in to see full entry.

HE EARNED HIS FIRST POCKET KNIFE

Last night at our monthly Pack meeting for Cub Scouts, my son was awarded his first pocket knife. He earned it by selling Scout Show tickets. It really meant a lot to him to get it. I was a little surprised at how excited he was over it. When he picked it as his prize, we were a little reluctant,... Sign in to see full entry.

I WANT TO VISIT THAT SWIMMING POOL

I went to pick up my five year old the other day and he had cut out a picture of what looked like a beach front hotel. He showed it to me and said we needed to go visit the swimming pool which was the main focus of the picture. Gotta love the priorities at that age. He has no idea where that hotel...

I THINK WE ARE READY FOR THE SCOUT SHOW TOMORROW

We better be. I just spent all afternoon and evening working on getting our Jungle Maze up and going. It ahs been an interesting project. The scouts have been working hard on it, although it often seemed liked the parents were more into it. I love how it really got everyone in the Pack working... Sign in to see full entry.

TIME TO HAVE SOME REAL FUN WITH SCOUTS

This year my son's pack is going to have a booth at the Scout Show. I have gone and volunteered to head this project up. We have named our project 'The Lost Jungle'. It will be a min-maze kind of thing that I very much want to make feel like a lost temple kind of like the one we see at the beginning... Sign in to see full entry.
