I'm not sure if I remembered to blog about Luke being a member of the Boy Scouts this year. Luke *really* enjoyed being a member of this organization. For the parents, it's a bigger time commitment than I had anticipated (the den meets twice a month for an hour, the pack meets once a month for a couple hours and numerous outings, camp outs, etc). I was a bad parent and didn't take him to any pack meetings nor did we go to every single outing. It was just too much togetherness for the scouts and me :)
They had a Blue and Gold banquet which seemed like a big deal (I don't know much about the scouts in case you didn't pick up on this). You start as a Tiger Cub when you're a first year member but by the end of the banquet, Luke was promoted to a Bobcat.
