Today is Cub Scout Twilight Camp. It is Hayden's second year. He is going as a Bear. A tradition at camp is to trade Swap-ums - little things the campers make to pin on to their hats. They trade each other and it always important to have the "hot" item. Here are some of ours: a sparkly fleur de lis (the scout emblem),
a miniature fortune teller,
two types of paper airplanes,
little bags of candied popcorn,
This is Hayden's hat. The other campers can "shop" his hat and he gives them a copy that he has in a ziploc. So. Much. Fun.
Everything is kept in this five-gallon bucket with the beautiful artwork. They carry it around and use it as their "seat" for the evening. Hayden will be gone all week during the hours of 3:30 and 9:30pm. Since Martin is out of town, Henry and I will get some bonding time! Actually, Henry is upstairs watching TV. He doesn't seem too excited about bonding time. Did I mention he's going into middle school?
