My six year old joined Cub Scouts on Wednesday and we have spent today preparing for his first camp next weekend. It took some time hunting out tents and stuff as we turned to the dark side of camping several years ago when we bought a trailer! We’ve had so much fun pitching tents, reminiscing about past adventures and watching Jack’s excitement build.
It occurred to me that so much of a child’s education takes place beyond the classroom thanks to the dedication, commitment and talent of many wonderful individuals who strive to make a positive difference in the lives of children. My first ever attempt at six word Saturday is for them. For the all the Boy and Girl Scout leaders, for the karate trainers, sports coaches, music tutors, chess club wizards, library volunteers, Science Olympians, dance and drama instructors and many more, here are my six words:
Thanks for enriching my childrens' lives.
