090909 – gotta love the date!

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

So bloggers across America need to post today if for no other reason than the date just looks so frakkin’ cool in two-digit form.

Spent most of the morning with Eric at his office, working on Boy Scout stuff. We’re discovering that I’m learning a whole different level of detail about Scouting that he isn’t able to touch in his daily work. For instance, I’ve now read the Boy Scout Handbook (Centennial Edition!), the Scoutmaster’s Handbook, the Patrol Leader’s Handbook, and the Senior Patrol Leader’s Handbook. I’ve read all the Boy Scout leader training materials, all the National Camp School camp administration materials, and a whole host of other Boy Scout publications and training materials that he just hasn’t had the opportunity to enjoy.

This job is also letting me read some fairly interesting leadership books, which has been a little bit like doing a “make your own” MBA program at home (only without the accounting). No, I take that back. There’s accounting, too. Never thought I’d be developing program budgets and operating budgets. But that’s what I’m doing.

I’m nearly finished with the Lavalette (which reminds me–I need to send a contribution to the Alzheimers Research Foundation–no pun intended!). It’s great TV knitting, and I love how it’s looking in KnitPicks Shine.

And so I leave you with some pictures of happy children at the beach (they are not so happy about doing their homework!)

What a ride!

What a ride!
