beavers


Last Tuesday, Charlie was invested into his local Beaver Colony.
He is now a squirrel.
And proud he is too in his uniform.
He will hopefully learn lots of interesting new skills.
I will be sewing on lots of badges to his sweatshirt from now on!
He loves going to Beavers, hanging out with boys from other school's and most are older than him too.
Their favourite thing to do is run around the room really fast and skid on their knees.
Boys eh?!

    1. Andrea, I did think the very same. It's there levelling of the playfield so to speak. Boys aged 6-8 all needing to be friends but haven't got the confidence to chat.. so running and sliding on knees is their form of greeting. x

  4. How lovely! My husband was in one of the first colony's and is still a leader now. Its a family business, his Grandmother is about to go to a garden party at Buckingham Palace for services to the Scouting movement. I suspect there is no way out for our daughter!

    1. Wow Abigail, that's so cool. I think scouts & Guides movements are a really good positive thing. I enjoyed Brownies when I was a girl. x

    1. Hi, yes I think it's good for kids too. They learn new skills and also respect. The leaders of ours are really military in their approach (something I thought I and Charlie would hate), but they all love going there. x
