Jared and Riley were promoted to Webelos tonight. They enjoy being Cub Scouts and are looking forward to their first year as Webelos.
Jared and Riley have been learning to play the recorder at school this year. Today their class put on a concert. They kids all did great!
The boys were promoted to orange belt with a white stripe today.
Riley received his Principal’s Award today. Since they normally give them out on the last Friday of the month, we were both surprised that he got it today, what with it being neither a Friday or the last week of the month. Had I known, I would have been there to take pictures of him getting it. In any case, we are very proud of him for having gotten this award.
Jared and Riley have been enjoying Cotillion. This is their first year and they have done a great job learning all the dances. They look so cute doing them too.
The boys and Dan went to a cub scout sleepover on the Queen Mary last night. They all had a great time!
This year the boys decided to do Doctor Who themed cars for the Cub Scout Pinewood Derby. Aidan made a TARDIS and the twins made Daleks. Unlike most of the other cars done almost entirely by the kid’s dads, they designed, shaped and painted these cars all by themselves. I think they did a great job with them. They may not have been the faster cars there, but they certainly were the coolest ones!
Dan and the twins made this pinewood derby twinkie cake for the annual cub scout cake auction. I think it turned out very cute and was a very creative entry.
The boys received their 1st Degree Orange Belts today. They have worked very hard and were excited to be moving up to the orange belt class. Jared was super excited to received the “Most Improved” award for this session.
