I have gabbed here before about how much William and Charlie love Beavers and Cubs. It is the only class / club / group that they have consistently enjoyed since they started. William is loving Cubs this year (especially the camping trips) and Charlie is in Beavers. It is a favorite evening out for both of them, and for me - a whole hour to myself!!!
Tonight was Charlie's investiture ceremony, where he traded in his Blue Tail for a White Tail. No more fooling around - having a white tail comes with a lot of responsibility!! Helping out the younger kids, knowing your promises and all of the rules for the opening and closing ceremonies, and being able to pat the special beavers head at the beginning of the hour respectfully rather than bonking him on the head.
Charlie was so proud of himself, and so was I.
