My Jr. Scout

Ever since I got put in as a cub scout leaer 3 years ago, Gideon has LOVED going with me.  He's always thought he's as big as the rest of the boys, so he just figures whatever they can do, he can do.  I don't always take him, but on some activities it's really fun to have him along.  And the boys seem to enjoy having him along.  They think he's pretty cool for a little kid, so he's kind of like their mascot.   Yesterday we took them up to hike the butte.  It's a tough hike for little kids, but the 3 boys did great.  So did Gideon.  The boys were so good with him, they all kept offering to help him and asking if he was making it okay.  It was really fun.

Once we got to the top, we found a nice spot and ate our lunch and then walked around the rim of the calderra and enjoyed the view.  I forgot to take any photos at the top, but oh well.  It was still fun.  Gideon really held his own with the big boys.  He even carried his own backpack for most of it.  He pretty much just thinks he's one of the scouts.
