Tomorrow, I get the house to myself again! Now, I can really get some work done with both scouts off to high school and the wife teaching at school also.
Start of school is a great time to remind scouts to practice their friendly
, and brave
skills by welcoming new boys they find in their classrooms. As a boy, I moved about every 2 years so I know what it's like to be the new guy. A friendly welcome makes a great impression and, who knows, maybe he was in scouts in his old town.
Cub Scout Packs are ramping up this month and looking for new scouts while Boy Scout Troops got their big influx in the spring. That recruiter patch might be a good incentive for some guys in your pack or troop. Our 6th grade patrols are on the prowl for a couple new recruits since this is a prime time to tell their buddies about the great time they had at summer camp. I'm hopeful of getting at least two non-scout visitors besides the dozens of Webelos that will stop by to fulfill their Arrow of Light requirements. Maybe we'll even get a few boys to join up!
Scout On and Drive Careful
