Now What?

So since 2004 I've been involved in Scouts.  At one point Perry was involved in Upwards basket ball, cub scouts, and a Saturday art class all at one time.  That was a very busy time in our life.   I realize I have one child, so I am sure all of that is nothing compared to being a multi-kid family.

Well Perry received the highest honor in scouting.  Eagle Scout in July.   I thought once school started
He and his dad would still be a part of the troop.
This is apparently not the case.  I knew I wouldn't
continue on, but I thought maybe they would.
They have both said well maybe we'll help out
next year, so maybe they'll just take a year off.
It feels weird like the end of an era.  Now I need to find some thing new to occupy my time.  Oh trust me I am rarely without something to craft.  I am currently multiple months behind on my documented life art journal for 2015,  I've come up with a christmas card that requires water coloring, die-cutting and then assembling, not to mention the t-shirt quilt I am attempting to create for Perry hopefully  for christmas, or maybe graduation, heck as much as I enjoy sewing (not at all), it may be done by the time he has his first child.  WHICH WILL NOT BE ANYTIME SOON.

So as it turns out theres plenty to occupy my time when I'm not working, heck maybe I'll blog more.

Congrats to you and Perry! An Eagle Scout is an awesome achievement. Good for your family! Interestingly enough, I got my three boys through their Eagle and then was asked to attend Woodbadge. I went just last September. I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would! We'll see what the future brings. Right now I'm serving as Assistant District Commissioner over 8 Packs. Never ever ever thought I'd be doing that, but it is good and blessing my life so much :-). I look forward to your ultra cool Christmas card! Always one of my favorite to receive!

Darcee how sweet of you to post a comment. I can't believe people still read my blog after all these years. I look forward to your christmas card each year also. I used to read your blog, but always lose track of it, as I change computers. And here I am again on a new computer and can't find your blog. Ha. Assistant District Commissioner is a big freakin' deal. My husband went through woodbadge when Perry was in cubs. Oddly enough, my best friends mother helped to write the original curriculm for woodbadge. It's changed quite a bit since then, but a lot of it is the same. Hopefully you'll see this comment and email me so I'll at least have your email, so you can email me your blog address, otherwise I'll have to write an actual letter to put in the christmas card.
