Widow Week Over

Yesterday Jack and Troop 555 returned home after what had to be one of the hottest and humid week of Boy Scout Summer camp ever. Then to add insult to injury it rained on Friday night so they had to pack up wet gear to take home. Jack hates heat and sun so he proves that mind of matter will help you get through anything. Today is rest day and he will! Glad to have him back with all the camp stories, humor, craziness and burly beard. I laughed when I saw he only took 5 pics...I went down last year and there are 43 pics that were taken! He said it was just to stinkin' hot to shoot pics. Can you tell who's the family blogger? So here are his few memories on film.




Here's our scouters looking fresh and ready for the week. After the week of hot and humid and rain they didn't look quite as fresh when they come back!
I was trying to figure out why Jack took this pic. It's the new camp office. Nice building. And then it hit me...it's the only place that's airconditioned...I hope he didn't cry when he passed it on the way to the camp site.
The little green trailer is our troop's and the big red one belongs to some show off! Hmmm..maybe Jack was having trailer envy.
There were about 12 tents set up on the site they use each year. I don't think I've ever seen it that crowded. They are having a very good year at the Scout reservation. It's a good way for young men to spend a week of their summer vacation and advance in the Scouting program.
Jack's good buddy and fellow Scout Master Tom bids a sleepy goodnight...See 'ya next year I'm sure!

Sounds like a Brisbane summer. Hot and unbelievably humid. But for now, we are have the most glorious weather. Almost enough to make me venture out into the bush. Mmmm. Or maybe just the park!

Looks like a wonderful camp and well organized. Now I can picture in my mind all the camp stories your've told over the years. That Jack is a dedicated scoutmaster, for sure~!
