So, a few of you know I have the honor (?) of working in Cub Scouts as the Cub Committee Chair for our Pack.

A few of you are wondering what the heck that even means.
Believe me, it's taken me a few months for figure it out myself. It's sort of like planning a birthday party every month for a bunch of 8-11 year old boys. Good times.

But now that I've dropped $50 on the uniform and patches, I'm liking it. A lot. Which I probably shouldn't say or they might decide I'm done or keep me in forever and I'll turn into one of those "weird" Scout people. And I mean WEIRD! (srsly)

I left my children in the hands of fate (sorry, I mean Dan, love you baby) and went to Pow Wow from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. I NEVER go away that long without my kids, so to take off to a Scouting thing and not Nordstrom for that long was almost painful.

But all the classes were at a high school, which was fun. The bell was ringing, I had my cute binder and I wasn't too shy to chat it up with the other "kids" like I was when I was 15. Almost had me thinking, "Masters Degree? Maybeeeeeee?" (When the other student loan is paid for sweetie, don't flip out!)

I came home and the kids were happy as clams. Dan made them breakfast, they went to RedBox and hung out all day. Greg was excited because "Dad said we could wear anything we want today." Lauren's clothes even matched!!

I learned a lot of new things. But next time I get time alone I am heading to the Anniversary Sale and buying something NOT khaki. ;)
