Well it is that time of year again, Boy Scout camp week! This is the week that I have to remind myself that Biggun is, big and can handle being w/o his Mom for a solid week. It is very hard to on me at times, when he is gone.
Being a homeschool family he is w/ me almost 24/7. On the occasion that he is at a friends house for the night or two I know he is only down the street or across town. But this week he is at
On a good note he is able to text me and/or call me if he can get reception. He did this last night. The first couple nights are always the hardest for him. (and hardest for Mom too.)
Here is a neat tid bit, I learned that the troop that is sharing the camp site with our troop this year is from Guatemala! How cool is that?
The Boy Scout program is a perfect extra to any homeschool. It helps me to have all kinds of things that I would not normally be able to do on my own. Got to love that!
I think we might include some geography games when he gets back. I am not sure he even knows where Guatemala is, but as a homeschooler this just opens up a door to learn.
The Merit Badges that he signed up for this summer are
A summer of science! I can't wait to build on that when he comes back. I am sure I can find some science experiments to add to our summer to fun. We can just call this the Summer of Science!!!
I can't wait till he comes back home. I miss my baby! No matter how big he is.
Oh! I almost forgot before he left for camp he went night fishing with his Dad and some friends for his birthday. He did a great job catching some fish. This picture is of his largest fish he caught.
Same fish different camera, sorry the pics were taken on cell phones.
