Last week Austin spent his days at Cub Scout Camp at Point Mallard in Decatur. He had a BLAST!!! He would come home every day and talk about all of the fun stuff they were doing and all of the fun he had with his friends from school and the new friends he met at camp. On Thursday all of the Parents were invited to camp to watch the end of the week skits. Scott met us in Decatur and Aunt Leisa came over to watch Jackson so Austin had a little alone time with Mommy and Daddy. Unfortunately we didn't get to see the skits. A HUGE thunderstorm rolled in just as they were getting ready to start the performances. Camp was letting out that day at one o'clock anyway and it was a good thing. Here are a few snap shots from the day
Here is Austin and Colton waiting for their turn to be called to lunch. The boys had decided to have a little water fight while waiting. It wasn't that hot outside but playing in the water was a blast!
Here are all of the boys from Pack 25 that attended day camp this year. Can't you tell from their expressions that they are just sooo happy to be having their picture made! BOYS???
Austin taking a quick break from the water fight. They were all having so much fun just being boys.
Here are Austin, Andrew and a new friend they met at camp just taking a break. Not everything went like clockwork during camp. So they had some downtime every now and then. They would fill the time with playing Frisbee or football. Yep that's right Austin learned how to enjoy playing FOOTBALL!!
You can see the storm starting to roll in. The wind picked up and the temperature dropped about 15 degrees in just a matter of minutes and then the thunder began to roll in the distance. I told Scott to go move our car closer in case we had to make a break for it. Good thing he did because not too long after he moved it closer the bottom fell out! So camp was over for the day!
Austin had a lot of fun last week with the archery and BB guns. They also got to talk on a HAM Radio one day and he talked to a man in Connecticut. That was a highlight on one of his days. He had a great time but was tired by the end of the week. They would meet at the school at 7:20 every morning and then get home every day around 4 o'clock.
