And no, i don’t have a “testimony of scouting”

I’m tired of sacrament meeting addresses praising Boy Scouting as a wonderful thing because it’s the best preparation out there for being a full-time missionary, since through Scouting you learn things like working with others. (And yes, I’ve heard that multiple times.) After all, you couldn’t ever learn to work well with others by being a drama rat or—heaven forfend!—devoting yourself to non-Mormon-church-based community service. No, no. Never, not at all.

I am really not a scouting fan. Lucky you only had girls. I have three sons. That'll be three scouts. Yippee.

Jamie was released yesterday from being Webelos leader. He enjoyed it. I think he's crazy.

Cameron will be a scout starting in October. Woohoo.
