Our Scouting involvement grows...

Okay, this year they asked me to be the Tiger Den Leader; I accepted and have loved every minute.
Our current Pack Treasurer's boy is now a Boy Scout, not a cub, and feels she needs to move on to his troop. She has kept up, very well I might add, but decided she'd like a replacement.
Who did all the leaders unanamously make first choice? My wife. And she accepted.
I'm only in my second year of Scouting and first year of being a leader, so to me this seems like a vote of confidence in my wife, myself and my boys.
Just had to share as I am proud not only of the offer, but the fact that DW accepted.

    Congratulations to the both of you for helping to shape tomorrow's movers and shakers. I'm sure you'll do a fine job.

    Good for you, Roadking. My son is an Eagle Scout, and I have served as his den leader, scout master and assistant scout master. It's great to work with your own son and help him realize his goal.

    I've also had basic scout master training as well as wood badge training. BSA is a great organization, and I congratulate you and your son for being part of it.

    When my son attended his very first cub scout pack meeting where he was introduced to scouting, he told me that he would be an Eagle some day. I thought that was good, but had my doubts. When he made good on his promise, I was a very proud papa. I hope you'll get to have that feeling some day as well.

    Good luck to the both of you.
    Jerry

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    Good for you, not a lot of folks will step up, I have been our Pack treasurer for 6 years.

    Some time ago (when I was young enough to keep up) I have been a scout, scoutmaster, counsel camp medic/volunteer, and Order of the Arrow adviser, all I say is- be prepared to have some great times. And thank you for helping the kids.:up:
