Rain Gutter Regatta

D's first rain gutter regatta at cub scouts was tonight.  The boys made their boats at scouts last week.  D brought his home and asked to paint it.  Apparently he understood how I work because he took matters into his own hands and colored his boat himself . . . . .with washable markers.
D was also awarded his Wolf merit badge and 3 arrow points.  In no small part, thanks to his grandmas for helping him while he was in Utah this summer.  All year since he turned 8 I've thought, "We need to work on scouts but we've got time."  Then, the night before he left for Utah, I was dozing off and jerked awake with a realization that we were out of time!  He would be a bear in little over a month!  Fortunately he had more done that I thought.  And the rest he worked on with his grandmas.  So he did it!  This year I vow to do better at working on his scout stuff.  Starting next month.
Proudly holding up his awards in a baggie.  He had to "fish" for them.
The boys and their boats.
 The girls got to make little pool noodle boats to race each other.  They thought it was pretty fun too!
