|I need a haircut!|
Today Curly and I had the morning together while the girls were at preschool. If you remember, Scout is working there during her off track time. We looked through his Soaring Leader book and found a project where he could build a model out of Legos. He promptly ran upstairs and proceeded to build this awesome little boat. He loves Legos, so it was pretty easy to get him excited about it.
Yesterday we looked through the Tiger scout book again and found an activity where Curly needed to build a bird house. Fortunately, I have a box with miscellaneous Lowe's and Home Depot kits from the kids classes. We only found one bird house, but that was enough. I let Scout and Baby Doll each choose kits to build as well. We had fun hammering and gluing for an hour.
There is always plenty to do when the older kids get home, dance, football, volleyball, rehearsal...
Sometimes I wonder about keeping the kids too busy, but I love teaching them what I know. And honestly, I don't know much about video games but unless you ask me to build a fire or tie a knot, I'm a pretty good scout.
