Cub Scouts & Coming Home

I went really basic with this week's Sketchy Thursday's sketch.  I left it up to LOTS of interpretation.

This week my son earned his first few Cub Scout belt loops and his Bobcat Badge.  

The Bobcat Badge is a big deal.  It signifies the scout has learned the Cub Scout Promise and the Honesty Connection, The Law of the Pack, the meaning of Weblos, the Cub Scout Sign, handshake, motto & salute, and "A Bobcat Requirement". 

All the boys who earned this patch were called up onto the stage during our Pack-wide meeting with one parent.  We painted different colors on specific parts of our Scout's face which recognizes their accomplishment. 

  • The blue is from the sky. The blue paw print of the Bobcat on your forehead is the spirit of the bobcat, and to remind you to do your best on the Cub Scout Trail.
  • The yellow is from the sun. The yellow marks under your eyes will help you see the light of the Cub Scout Trail, and symbolize the bright spirit of Cub Scouting.
  • The white on your nose is for purity and to help you know right from wrong as you go along the Cub Scout Trail.
  • The red mark on your chin is for courage to always speak the truth.
  • Finally, the green mark on each cheek symbolizes the spirit of nature to guide the Cub Scout in living in harmony with the great outdoors.

I am so proud of my little dude!  (Other than that uber cheesey grin he has on his face for the picture, LOL.)
This week's Pink Ninjas prompt is "pretty in pink".  Well, of course I had to make a page about my little girlie. 
This is her going-home-from-the-hospital outfit.  She's one-day-old here.  I call this her "Driving Miss Daisy" look so I went with some old-fashioned looking colors and pattens. 
Thanks for stopping by today!
