September Happenings

This wasn't in September but I forgot to talk about our August pack meeting. We had a cub Olympics (thanks for the inspiration Sam). 
The invite
The kids walked in and got a bib. We split them into groups and had different events for them to compete in. I had the Olympics theme music playing when they walked in which was fun. And at the end we awarded each kids with a medal and we played the national anthem during that. 

I thought it was a fun night. 

September Pack meeting 
The invite...I glued little army men to the bottom.  
The theme this month was bravery, so an armed forces theme seemed appropriate. We have a lot of military in our ward, so we asked our awesome bishop to come and talk to the boys (he flies the big F16s for the air force). He is so great with the boys and talked to them about making good decisions, being prepared and being brave in today's world. 
We also have a kid in our ward that is in the ROTC. He did a demonstration which was fun. 
Then the boys went to Flight school (they made and flew paper airplanes), basic training (they did a few drills and an obstacle course), and they went to weapon training (they made marshmallow guns out of PVC pipe). I spray painted pvc pipe and the connectors to look like camouflage.
Jared was not there at the beginning so our webelos leader ran the meeting. 
We are in a mad rush to get everything done for Devin's arrow of light before his birthday in November. He got a lot of awards tonight. 

I really wanted to make camo cupcakes. They weren't nearly as cute as the ones from pinterest, but they weren't a pinterest fail either, so I call it a win. 

Adalynn started horse riding lessons. She has been begging for over a year and I finally signed her up. Adding one more thing to my plate seems crazy right now, but she LOVED it and was just grinning ear to ear the whole time. I really want each of my children to find something they are passionate about, whether it is a sport or music...something they love. She loves animals so much, this seems like something she might stick with. We will see. 

 At the end of her lesson she got to take off the saddle and give him a shower. 

A few more pictures from my phone.
