B took W camping this weekend with the scouts. It turned out to be a beautiful few days with great weather. The trees are starting to turn colors and it was just chilly enough to really enjoy the campfire. W is a webelo scout now and he was so happy to finally earn his whittling chip. This means he can now bring his pocketknife to all the scout camping trips. He sailed through the whittling test with lots of kudos from the scoutmaster and few other kids. W has been using a pocketknife for a while, though, carving and whittling any piece of wood he could find.
The rest of the weekend was filled with fun activities, games, and playing, which included: pumpkin decorating, archery, target practice with a fire hose, running in and out of a big pirate ship, and hanging out in the cabins.
