There was the High School Rodeo where special needs kids and their families are invited to give roping, bull riding and horseback riding a try in-between competitions. Its good to see the interractions between "typicals" and "specials".
Matthew loves all the "cow girls" and my grandson really enjoyed the roping this year.
Hubby had to make a trip to the Kentucky plant one weekend so we accompanied him and made a fun excursion to nearby Dinosaur Land. Last year we learned how to identify meat eaters vs plant eaters... this year, we focused where in the world the bones were found... identifying countries and continents!
We also had fun mining for gemstones this year and we now have a rock collection!
My grandson asked me to help him with cub scouts when a new Pack formed at his school. I think I may have jumped all in and become the Wolf Den Leader (unless the dad who showed up at the first meeting and has been absent the last 3 weeks suddenly shows up again). There are only two second graders that have been attending.... I did this for my son 20+years ago and had a den of 15 boys... so this will be a piece of cake!
I'm off to our pack meeting tonight and doing a presentation on the flag and a flag ceremony!
