You got it. I just got called as a cub scout leader for the Webelos. I know nothing about being a cub scout leader, but I am excited to figure things out.
I have always had a great respect for the Boy Scouts of America program. I remember when my brother got his Eagle. It was a lot of work for a teenage boy. I was impressed that he organized an Earthquake Preparedness Program for our community in Southern California all by himself.
In my teenage years, being an Eagle scout was one of the items on my "Dream Guy" checklist. Ha, remember writing those? Now, I am excited for my own boys to be Boy Scouts. I suppose getting in the swing of Cub Scouts will give me a good head start helping my boys through scouting.
I love that cub scouts embraces the role of the family and teaches wholesome values as well as encouraging an active healthy lifestyle. As I was flipping through the manual, I was excited to find more than just tying knots and camping prep. There were badges emphasizing science, technology, and engineering. I love that today's Boy Scout has evolved to "be prepared" in many areas!
So, I am venturing in to a new realm. Any advice for surviving scouts? Have you been a scout leader or had a great one for your kids? Or, a better question may be, how am I going to accessorize the uniform? ;)
