|Beaver Scouts - Hobby Badge
Last week the Beavers started up again after the Summer Break and Jack couldn't wait to get back. That Scout Hut is the craziest and loudest place on Earth on the first day back! I swear my ears were ringing for about an hour after I dropped him off! But it was a lot calmer at the end of the meet when I went to collect him again.
There are some big things coming soon with Beavers, the most exciting being the Camp this weekend. His friend Rory is going too this time and he simply cannot wait. It has become THE most important and talked about thing all week.
They were also asked to bring something to the meeting this week. They could try to get their Hobby Badge by bringing in an example of a hobby which they could talk about and demonstrate. Well, Jack has a lot of things he likes like his Jujitsu, cooking, DS and Wii U games and so on. He chose to take in his Lego Minifigures collection. He took his Simpsons Lego Minifigures, and a selection of his own custom Minifigures and talked about how he liked to collect special Minifigures and create his own people which he then used to play games. I leant him my display case to take his chosen figures in.
He has achieved the badge, but they didn't have enough, or had misplaced them hee hee, so he will get it another week, but he was very pleased to have been able to take part especially since he hasn't been Invested yet. That's happening in a couple of weeks or so.
But first... it's Camp this weekend, and the swimming gala next Monday. Exciting times for boys (and their mums)!
