Thursday Thoughts


It rained!  It rained!!  We have been sooo dry here so it was wonderful to hear rain about 4:00 am this morning!  Of course, Connor has soccer practice tonite and we are camping this weekend so it's not great timing, but I was still glad to hear it falling.

We've had such a very busy week so far.  Monday was Connor's first den meeting as a tiger cub.  There are eight boys in his den, and he's already seeming to bond with them.  We took a hike and collected leaves to do leaf rubbings.  They are certainly a full-of-energy group.  His den will only meet once a month, but then they only have five achievements to do for their tiger badge, and one component of each is a family item.   He has already completed the requirements for his soccer belt loop, and we are starting on electives and his soccer pin items.

Next week we are doing something special with our family; I bought four tickets for us to go see Walking With Dinosaurs here in Winston-Salem.    For more information about it see http://dinosaurlive.com.  Duncan still thinks it's a movie, but I know they will be quite excited when we get there on Wednesday night!!

Isn't rain wonderful when you haven't had it for a while? My new roof is so high I can't hear rain falling and I kind of miss that. Sounds like fun with the troop. My youngest is trying to join Girl Scouts, so we'll see how that goes.

That was in St Louis too, but tickets were really high and we had so many other things going on at the time. Hope they enjoy it, it sounds really neat! Brendan had to miss his first Tiger cub den meeting, and we haven't heard a peep from his leaders since so I don't know if we've missed another meeting or what. I need to call them.
