In the meantime, he's trying to make his exercise program as fun as possible. The other afternoon, he asked if he could walk to the gas station about a mile away so that he could get some exercise. He came back with this:
Exercise: check. Personal fitness: I don't know. I suspect a 70 ounce soft drink doesn't fall in line with personal fitness goals. I'll leave that discussion up to his merit badge counselor, though.
My friend Debra at Footprints in the Butter blogs somewhat regularly about the merit badges her kids are working on, and I'm joining her this week. Next week, I plan to share some pictures one of the scoutmasters (aka my wonderful husband) took at summer camp.
