What a Day!

Caleb woke up with a hacking cough and stayed home from school.  He likes the idea of sitting in his pajamas watching cartoons all day.  He wasn't happy to miss Cub Scouts though.

Cub Scouts was a lot of fun.  I divided the den into 3 groups of 3 (1 group had 4) and gave each 5 crayons, 5 zip ties, and a roll of Scotch tape.  They had 10 minutes to come up with a game that everyone could play. One group taped the crayon to the floor and turned the zip ties into rings for a ring toss game.  One made a soccer goal and the game was to roll 3 crayons at a time to make a goal.  The third made a small ring from the tie and a large square from the other 4.  1 person held the square while the other had to push a crayon though the small ring, through the square and have a catcher catch it.  Good job by all.

We also shared our collections.  Lots of coins and shells, some pressed pennies, baseball cards, and crystals.  I finally got the first 2 pages of my stamp album done after all these years.  Oh Canada!

Finally we made a 10 foot long banner for the Blue and Gold Banquet.
