We’ve been talking to the kids about scouting for ages. Adam was a devoted Boy Scout through high school. I enjoyed a brief stint as a Girl Scout. But we have no interest in Derrick being a part of a program that openly spreads bigotry, and I think Girl Scouts are…well…boring.
So, what are we to do?
Invent our own scouting program, of course!
Adam still has all of his scouting books, and there are hundreds of companies that stock spiffy patches that can double as merit badges. We presented our idea to the kids, and they are psyched!
Step one, forming the “laws” and “pledge” of our troop of pint-size viking warriors. That’s in the works…coming soon!
