This past weekend, the Waffle took Hayden to his "Cross Over Campout" for Cub Scouts. It's held at the end of every school year after the boys have worked toward earning their next badge in scouting. Hayden crossed over from Wolf Scout to Bear Scout. He started Cub Scouts in 1st grade and has really enjoyed it a lot. Our Pack has grown significantly and is getting more organized, so it's really turning out to be a great program. Here are a handful of photos from this weekend's events.

These happy campers earned $1 each for finding lucky 4 leaf clovers.

The Waffle looks just as good when all done as when he first begun!
The boys came home Saturday night after the ceremony. Hayden was very proud of his earning his Whittling Chip Badge. The next day he wanted to carve another bar of soap (that's how you learn - with a bar of soap). So, the Waffle let him take his new pocket knife out back with the bar of soap . . . .
AND LOOK WHAT HAPPENED!
Hayden earned his first "Badge of Honor." There was really more blood than I care to talk about, but he's fine now. This evening, little more than 24 hours later, he was playing baseball, shooting a bow and arrow and also shooting a BB gun again. I think he likes this guy stuff!
