Cub Scout Community Service
This is a picture of my cub scout Dakota, he is 7 years old and LOVES being a part of cub scouts. Well what we did today was really special for these boys. We went to one of the BIG parks here and did some community service. We brought rakes and trash bags and the boys picked up the big sticks and all kinds of trash while me and the other moms raked up the smaller sticks into BIG piles so the park workers could mow without hitting all the sticks. It was a HUGE job but the boys were so very proud that they had done something that was going to help the workers and make the park look nicer. While we were there the boys went to the pavilion to check for trash and sticks and there was a family setting up for a wedding reception so they were so excited that they got to clean up around there for them so the reception would look even nicer. There was a TON of trash around the pavilion and those boys worked really hard but when we got done they stepped back and said wow it looks really nice here now and this family doesn't have to do it. You could see the pride on thier faces. I am proud of all my boys. Travis with his baseball and football, Cody with his baseball and soccer and Austin for just being a cool kid due to the fact that he is to young for sport but there is something special about my Dakota. He is such a bright child and loves to help and know that he did something good even though he doesn't always get a thank you or any recagnition for his work. He has such a great outlook on life. I am one proud cub scout mommy.
