It was nice to have a break from remote learning this week. Everyone was able to sleep in and didn’t have to worry about zoom classes and homework. We got a nice surprise from Falyn’s school when this sign appeared in our front yard. It definitely brought a smile to her face.
Falyn and the twins used this week to work on Scout activities. Both Jared and Riley have the council go ahead for their Eagle Projects. They will start moving forward with them next week. Falyn finished up her Second Class requirements and had her scoutmaster conference. Her board of review is scheduled for next week. She also continued working on three merit badges: Personal Fitness, Personal Management, and Family Life.
Falyn also had a zoom meeting to continue working on her Ad Altare Dei religious award. One of the requirements for the chapter they were working on was to discuss with an Eagle Scout how they see their role in helping younger Scouts see the values promoted by Scouting. Aidan, and two of his friends (who also happen to be big brothers of Scouts in the class) jumped into the zoom and lead a great discussion with the younger Scouts.
We have been enjoying the musicals Andrew Lloyd Webber has been making available for free each week. This week’s show was The Phantom of the Opera. He drops a new musical each week on Friday at 11 am PT. It is there for you to watch for 48 hours on the The Shows Must Go On! YouTube channel.
I wasn’t able to try out any new recipes this week because we were missing ingredients for every recipe I was interested in making. I’m trying to stay away from the store for as long as possible, but may have to venture out later this week as we run out of food for dinners.
