Feature Friday!

So its Friday! Hooray! And I thought to help me catch up on so much "back postings" that I *should* have done, I will start doing a feature story each Friday! (In the hopes that I will catch up somehow- now the only problem is where to begin?! *sigh)

So I think I will start with Scout Crossovers first seeing as I believe that was the first major event to happen since my *falling out* <--Ugh it sounds soooo horrible!

So now.. I bring you... Feature Friday: Scout Crossover!

(did you happen to notice that I started each paragraph with so? Haha.. I noticed too but instead of editing and taking it out- I thought I would leave it in, you know, so the future me could see my lack of skills! Wink)

Scouting has been a big thing in our family lately. With both Chugo and Kata in it its hard for it to NOT be a big thing. Chugo had just started scouts in May of 08. The crossover was in Feb. 09. Yes dates blah blah.. my point in telling you this timeframe is that within the 9mos since starting scouts he earned all 20 webelos activity badges and received the heavy shoulder award! I was so proud of him. He had so much catching up to do with the other boys and did it in no time!

For those of you who aren't familiar with the scouting world... Crossing over means leaving Cub Scouts and entering into Boy Scouts. They had a big ceremony called the Blue and Gold. After dinner and cake (yum!) They had the crossover ceremony and it was so wonderful to see Chugo entering into this new arena. He was so proud of himself that I had one of those, "Omg don't be a tard and cry" moments that we so often find ourselves in as Mothers.

With out further ado I give you Chugo... The Boy Scout Boy Wonder!
