Daddy took Wyatt on his first scout camping trip this weekend. The theme was Knights of the Roundtable, and they also did a 'Tent or Treat'. Chris and Wy headed out Friday night to assist in setting up, but the majority of the families showed up on Saturday.
Jordan had a softball double-header, so we stayed in town so she could attend that.
As soon as Chris and Wy left the driveway, Jo and I headed to Blockbuster to rent the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Twilight movies. We had burgers on the grill, candy and soda, and watched the Twilight marathon. We're stoked about the last movie.
Saturday while I was at the softball fields, I got a text from Chris telling me that one of the dads had dressed up with a chainsaw (sans chain) and was chasing the kids around the campground scaring the crap out of them. At one point, Wy came over and asked Chris to take off his night lights so the chainsaw guy couldn't see him. For the grand finale, the boys were all sitting around the bonfire, eating their candy, and the guy jumped out at them. Chris said one of the kids threw his candy at him, screaming the entire time, and ran. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. And for the record, my kid is fine. He laughed right along with us retelling the story.
Jordan's team won their first game, and they tied the second. Jojo is struggling a bit with her hitting, and so we're trying to figure out how to get her past that.
The boys came home this morning, tired, dirty, and more tightly bonded.
Wyatt proudly showed me his mosaic, his catapult that he built, and his shield. He won the jousting competition, and earned three beltloops and a patch. He was a proud boy.
And I'm a proud mama.
