Kyle receives Webelos badge and Arrow of Light

So one day kyle had Pack Meeting. His leader came up to me and told me kyle only had 2 months left before he moved to the Boy Scout troop, that is when I realized that Kyle was like zero out of Nine for his merit badges. So I bit the bullet, canceled all my appointments (like I have any of those anyway), ordered a Big Mac, large fry and a choco shake and proceeded to eat them while I barked orders to Kyle. After a lot of dumb looks, lots of frustration and a few gray hairs Kyle finally earned his Webelos Badge and his Arrow of Light. Now is the fun time of scouts. You all know what I am talking about, sneaking BB guns on camp outs, a scout issued weapon of mass destruction (a Swiss army knife), learning how to play with fire and how to put it out using the only one true way. TO PEE ON IT! Last Sunday Kyles Boy Scout Leader came over to give us the head up on what was going to happen, what to expect and to get the insurance information. Out of all the information he shared with us the best part of it was he said the scouts were responsible for the cooking, cleaning and serving the adults the food, that sounded like a pretty cool idea. Well here are some pictures of the hard work I did and the credit Kyle got for it.
