“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.”

Scouting #1

This will be the first in hopefuly many to come posts on Trey and scouting! I am lost in the world of scouting...I mean it...they probably have a Scouting for Dummies book and I should seriously consider getting it and reading it cover to cover. So, for those serious scouters out there, please forgive me if I call a meeting the wrong thing, or, heaven forbid, place one of Trey's patches in the wrong place. That is, if I ever get them onto the shirt in the first place. 

Let me start by describing a little about Trey's scout troop! We have been so blessed. When we first moved here and Trey turned 8 we started looking at the local Scout troops because our ward didn't have enough boys to really have one. We weren't really impressed and felt kind of lost as which way to turn. Luckily at that same time, an amazing Grandpa to one of the other boys Trey's age decided to step in and become the Scout leader for these two boys! It has been amazing and Trey has learned so much! He loves going to scouts and we are so thankful for the time and effort that his scout leader puts into their meetings! To make this a little easier as I post about Trey's scout troop, I will rename a few people. I will now call his scout leader R and his fellow scouter K. 

A few months ago Trey had his first pack meeting! R had laid out a display for the boys (and me) to look through of K's dads (R's son) scouting career! It was amazing to see all of the hard work that the two of them had done! The thing that I was most impressed with was that he had scrapbooked it all! Surprise, surprise journaling and scrapbooking is what impressed me the most! So here we are at the (somewhat) beginning of Trey's scouting experience and I hope that one day he can turn to this to show his son(s) what he had done!
