Terrific, wonderful, fulfilling, perfect……

I wouldn’t in no way no how trade this weekend for anything. It was perfect. Oh I know it was cold, 15* one morning, rain and snow another day but the fun with the kids, the time with Mike, adults who care for kids as much as I do….it was just plain great. This weekends theme at Venture Camp was Harry Potter and the half witted loons. The kids were sorted into 4 groups…snakes, fox, heron, bear. The adults were all loons, ha..ha.. There was potions where the kids collected many things from the woods and then made a concoction. There was a Wizard dual where the kids got to try and push each other off a log with swimming noodles, Mike loved this one the best cuz I played and he got to beat me up and push me off the log. Then there was “the Hunt” where they set up clues and the kids had to find these clues and figure out the answer to the question. Mike’s group won this one and Mike placed 3rd in the wizard dueling. There was also climbing that Mike just loves. Mike, Winchester and I also volunteered in the kitchen for lunch one day, set up, cooking and cleaning.

When we got home we then went to Taylor’s Eagle Court of Honor. Such a great achievement for any scout.

Okay some pictures to share with you from our weekend. I hope you all had as great a weekend as I did. Take care and God Bless.
