Our wild scouts
My hubby and I are Weblo's leaders for our church scout pack and we meet on Wednesday evenings. Believe me, I'm too old for this. There are only four little boys 10 and 11 years old, but they are the wildest bunch. We have no control over them most of the time. they even get the dog so riled up she eats her "babies", just plain eviscerates them, stuffing everywhere. Last night one little guy was so disruptive, I just quit what I was doing and sat and looked at him. He went on for 15 minutes and when it didn't look like he was going to quit before midnight. I stopped him and told him that he could lead the group next week and I would expect a real lesson. When my kids were that age they didn't run through someone's house like wild men and disrupt everything. They waited until they left home to be wild. (not always a good thing, I'll admit). We did get through the lesson, Talked about 1 room school houses and the times teachers used switches to punish (OH, for one of those now!) played some games pertaining to the lesson on education. Then I sat them by the door, told them to put shoes on and wait for their moms. This was one of the longest 90 minutes in my life and today I'm beat, just want a nap. I'm sure glad I didn't have to work. I'm not sure where to go from here, perhaps ask our leaders to find someone younger. HRH doesn't have a clue either and the dog doesn't have many of her stuffed "babies" left. AAARRRGG.
