The above photo is of Dear Hubby and Son #1 at Camp Skymont in Tennessee. They just returned from spending a week there with their Boy Scout Troop. Dear Hubby took a bunch of photos of the scenery - breathtaking. For my blog, though, I'm just going to show a few.
Below is the tent where Son #1 and his buddy bunked. The adult quarters were the same. I couldn't imagine spending seven nights in one of these. If you look carefully, you can see Son #1 perched on his bunk under the mosquito netting.
Son #1 worked on several merit badges at camp. Below he's working on the fishing merit badge. He had to catch, clean, cut and cook a fish. Here he is cooking a perch. He has to catch one different type of fish to complete the requirements for the badge, but that one can be catch and release.
Dear Hubby told me that Son #1 really impressed the person teaching the reptile and amphibian class with his near-encyclodaedic knowledge of the subject. He has an amazing memory when it comes to things that interest him.
They had a terrific time, but it's great to have them both back at home.Happy Belated Birthday to Son #1 (he turned 12 on June 23rd). If you're interested, click here for his birthstory.
