One of the great things about living in a small community is the opportunities. We have a wonderful Cub Scout Pack that is very involved in the lives of the boys and their families. This weekend our Cub Scout Pack went on an adventure to the Georgia Aquarium.
We saw jellies, sea otters, dolphins, sharks, a variety of whales and fish, puffins, penguins and so much more. We got to tour the backstage areas and see how much work actually goes into keeping this place going everyday.
The most exciting part of our day came at bedtime. We got to sleep next to this beautiful tank full of incredible creatures.
What a wonder it was to lay there and watch all of these things that God has created. I’m blown away by such a loving Father which chose to give us so much. Mankind has only started to understand about some of these creatures but God put so much detail into every little, tiny thing; things that will be discovered for years to come. If He put so much thought into the creation of these creatures, can you even imagine how much he thinks about you? How he plans our days and lives, moment by moment?
Cub scouts has given us many great opportunities. One of our favorites is to build and race a pinewood derby car. All the boys enjoy creating their own designs and working with their hands to make their very own cars. Only minimal help from grownups is given. Nathan was having a bit of a challenge this year as he had strep throat all week, just look at that poor fella. He had all the worst symptoms and felt terrible but by the weekend he was cleared by the doctor. Race day was a success. Nathan won a drone from our local Toyota dealership for having the best design. Of course, the ultimate goal is to be first in the race but Best Design is not to bad for a boy who gets to walk home with a drone.
I am so proud to be able to teach my son to believe in things that are of value. I want him to live in a world that believes in the strong fighting for the rights of others, that there are men worth looking up to, and that we all have a part to play in this world.
Nathan and his dad are proud to be supporters of our Veterans. They were happy to walk with their cub scout troop in the Veterans Day Parade even though it was a cold evening for us Alabamians. That’s the least we can do to honor our Veterans that gave up so much for us.
We are proud to call these guys our heroes. Thanks for serving for us Uncle Joe and Grandpa.
