Three more blocks!

I am getting down the wire with the New York Beauty! I finished up three more blocks and only have three left!!!!! So exciting! I am going to do two more blocks tonight and hopefully finish the last block tommorrow before I head off to work.

Here's the lastest three.....

I had a blast camping with the cub scouts. Yesterday afternoon, the boy scout came over to do some activities with the cubs. One of the stations was first's an exchange between the kids.

Boy scout: "What would you do if you were on a hike in the forest and your friend hurt his leg?"
Cub scout: "I would call 911 on a cell phone."
Boy scout: "Ok, but what if you could not get a cell phone signal and make the call?"
Cub scout: "I would wait for the rescue helicopter to come."
Boy scout: "Ok, ok, but what if the helicopter could not land and you needed to get your friend to another place?'
Cub scout: "I would tell him to walk."
Boy scout: "Ok, but his leg is hurt so you have to make him a splint. You can use sticks and rip your shirt sleeve for bandages."
Cub scout: (tugging at his sleeve) "How do you rip your shirt?" and another cub scout: "I have on short sleeves."

At this point I thought the boy scout should get a merit badge for his patience. Here's my cub scouts just hanging around at spring camp....

Have a great day!

Sounds like it was a great time! I'm still laughing just imagining that exchange between the scouts. I can close my eyes and think of Wil as a Cub Scout and coming up with similar responses. Thanks for the laugh.

You pick the neatest material for your blocks! When I grow up I want to be like you! Looking forward to this weekend - Cracker Barrel and a retreat - can't get any better.
Loved the chat between the Scout and the Cubbies! Poor Scout - he really tried.
