We spent the afternoon today at Spring Advancement for the boys. Meiners finished his first year as a Cub Scout and MrT is moving up to Webelos.
I've never been to advancement before - usually it has been cold or Sashi was too little. I'm glad we were able to go today as a family and watch the kids play in forts and a babbling brook. Pooks is lucky that two of her good friends have brothers her own brothers' ages - so even she skipped off to unearth 'sea snails' from the river, earth worms, and beetles.
Yesterday, to prepare our part of the meal to be served to all the Boy Scouts and their families at today's ceremony, we unearthed some of our very own bugs here at home. In chocolate. Cupcake form.
The three big kids helped along the bug path. We decided chocolate bugs were a bit of hard work. But they persevered and ate their fair share of creepy crawlies today. Chocolate creepy crawlies that is.
I'm a mother of 4 sweet kids who is constantly trying to improve or reinvent myself to be better than I was yesterday...or even earlier today. God's Grace gets me through the challenges facing me in this season of my life as I live my days as a stay-at-home mom supporting my husband in all his endeavors (even learning to pick up his dry cleaning) while trying not to overindulge in the common icee mocha.
