This is Jonah's first year as a Tiger Scout. He seems to be really enjoying it so far. I think Drew is as excited as Jonah because he is all about doing outdoor activities. Samuel is loving following along as much as he can. Samuel would be a Tiger Scout tomorrow if he was old enough.

Friday night I texted Drew to make sure all was well. He texted me back with a picture of this...
He said the boys were distracted by the 8 foot alligator in the lake so they were late getting dinner started. Seriously, that would have been the end of me camping. Their site was uphill approximately 300 feet from the lake. No thank you!
Saturday was filled with free time, a scavenger hunt, a hike to learn about trees, a flag retirement ceremony, and some other badge activities. Jonah had a blast. Samuel loved it too. Both boys played to the point of exhaustion.
Unfortunately storms moved through the area starting late Saturday night. The tent stayed dry so they slept just fine. Drew packed all the stuff earlier on Saturday helping to make for a speedy getaway on Sunday morning. Drew had planned for a nice breakfast, but he decided breakfast at Denny's would be better. The boys loved that too!
The boys were so tired when the got home on Sunday afternoon. They are still tired today. Maybe I should send them camping every weekend?
