Once Upon a Time, I was just a Mom.
In 2009, my eldest child joined Cub Scouts. He loved it. I was just a Mom. I brought him to meetings, made sure my 2 other boys didn't get into any mischief, and then went home when the meeting was done.
That lasted 1 year. Our Den Leader went back to work full time, and our Assistant took over.
Guess who then became the Assistant?
I'm grateful that she and I were well acquainted already, as our boys wen to pre-school together and then CCD. We only had 3 boys, then 4, and ended our journey with 8. What an amazing journey! We watched these young boys grow into young men. We became friends with their parents. I cried at our crossover [from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts] and they went to different Boy Scout Troops.
During my 4 year reign as her Assistant, I became the Pack Secretary, then the Advancements Coordinator. I figured, that's a good amount to handle.
Towards the end of my oldest's journey with Cub Scouts, my middle son began Cub Scouts. I'm so happy we have a great Den Leader !!
Guess who became the Assistant?
Let's evolve with the times [I Said] and get a website...
I'm a blogger, I can totally rock this !
My Cub Scout
Became a Boy Scout !
How in The World
Did that Happen ??
Many parents have to work, so it makes sense for me to handle some of these jobs. I'm a Stay At Home, Blog from Home Mom. A Scout Mom through and through.
I have a sticker on my car that say Eat. Sleep. Scout. Repeat. - yes.. that is my life.
So then our Popcorn Colonel moved on .. It's once a year.. Why not!

Then my youngest began Cub Scouts. We have a Great Den Leader !!
Our Cub Scout Program changed. Everything we had known began anew. Why would I ask a parent, who works full time, who has never been in Cub Scouts to jump in head first at the beginning of the school year? I'm not that kind of person. I had all summer to look over the program, to figure out how to make things fun for our 1st graders and help plan the year.
I have 6 years experience, I can do this !
Our Cub Master recently had to depart our pack for family priorities. We asked around. We talked to parents. It only made sense after talking to the committee.
We have a New Cubmaster !
