The older 3 boys had their end of year Court of Awards for Boy Scouts this week. Which meant a family pot luck/picnic for everyone. Planned by the adult leaders. Meaning as long as all you wanted was chips, cookies, and brownies, it was an awesome evening. If you wanted real food, you had to come home and eat. Yup, it is the same thing every year. The kids come home full of sugar and the adults come home starving. But all 3 boys made progress this year so a good time was had by all.
Liam will join the troop next year. I will admit on some level I feel a bit badly for the boys because there are so many of them that many of the adults never bother to learn their names. They just refer to them as "Oh, you are a Hitchings boy."
