Jude has decided to join Cub Scouts this year. There first event was a Cub-O-Ree (like a Jamboree) out in Bastrop. The focus was shooting sports (archery, bb guns) which I suspect was initially attracted him to Cub Scouts. So we spent out Saturday under the pines of Bastrop. Jude got to shoot a bb gun first thing that morning and he seemed to really enjoy it. I’ll have to say I was a little nervous, but it was a very controlled situation, and the parents assisted the kids. I couldn’t get a good picture, since the range instructor was very strict and I doubt he was going to let me hang out on his shooting range to take pictures.
Jude also got to construct a rocket that was launched with compressed air. It was a family project, actually, with mom and dad duct taping like crazy. His rocket was awesome, but got stuck in a tree, so Jude was really disappointed. We didn’t stay for the whole event, since we had Fox with us, but it was a pretty fun day for what we got to do.
