This is the first time since becoming a Boy Scout that Connor isn't going to summer camp. But decisions had to be made. So instead of going to camp, Connor is hosting his own merit badge college week. We'll see...
The plan is for him to finish up Emergency Preparedness (which shouldn't take long!) and otherwise, he is going to focus on some badges he really hasn't done much with.
- Citizenship in the Community-- he's done a couple things for this one like attend a school board meeting and a bunch of service hours. But there is a lot left.
- Personal Management-- so he gets to track stocks and make a to-do list and all sorts of fun stuff like that.
- Inventing-- you know those things you think your kids really aren't going to succeed in doing, but you have to let them do anyway? This is one of them.
- Hiking-- not the hiking part. He's waiting for William to come back before doing that. But he is going to get the other requirements done, including writing up some plans for 10 mile hikes. And we'll be going on them on weekends this summer and into the fall. Because *I* need it. Oh, I mean, so the kids can earn their merit badge.
