Do Your Best- I Love Cub Scouts!

One of my favorite quotes is, “Never let good enough, rob you of your best.” -Ezra Taft Benson. This goes along with the more simple and straightforward motto of cub scouts, “Do your best!”

With the recent news of the LDS church not participating in the Varsity and Venture scout requirements as of January 2018, I was very glad to learn they are going to continue with the scouting program for the 8-13 year old boys. Josh and I are Webelos leaders (Webelos are the 10 year old boys) and we have had this responsibility since January. It has been one of my favorite callings (church responsibilities) I have had in a long time. We started out with 2 boys and just got a third boy to the group. It’s been a lot of fun and I’ve enjoyed learning with the boys. We have a scout leaving at the end of the month because he is turning 11 so we needed to finish up his Webelos award. We went up to Provo Canyon and hiked along the Provo trail and then cooked tin foil dinners and roasted marshmallows. The scouts were great and it was a really fun evening.

Provo river- The river was so high part of the trail was closed off.
We all threw rocks in the river.
Josh looks like he’s doing a war dance, but really he just threw a huge rock into the river. 🙂
I had to add this one too because Josh looks like he’s doing some karate moves to the river, but really just threw a rock in the river.
Still throwing rocks, Josh is cute!
The scouts were prepping the dinner campfire site.
