Aunty Lu and Uncle Steve from Connecticut arrived that afternoon too and came to watch the game as well. Uncle Steve had a meeting in DC so they spent the weekend with us. We went bowling Sunday afternoon and then had dinner at Sakura - Japanese Hibachi Cooking Restaurant - YUMMY.
I forgot to take the camera with me so no pictures were taken but when I get a chance, I'll take one of Maddy in his uniform.

Third week of practice and the boys are improving on their basketball skills. Tonight they practiced their dribbling, bounce passing and shooting and ended the night with a scrimage. Their first game is on Dec 13th - not sure who against but we will find out at next weeks practice. Their team name is Black Knights and they will be receiving their uniforms next week.

We tagged along to help out and make sure the boys were safe. It was hard to keep up with them especially when they ran from house to house.
All-in-all it was great to be able to take part in a community service like this. Well done Boy Scouts!!

Tuesday afternoon was spent at Annie's place with Michael on a playdate. They had fun on the trampoline and playing games. He came home all sweaty and stinky haha!
On Wednesday night, he went with his Dad to a cub scout meeting. They went on a short hike and spent time learning the cub scout promise and other core requirements to receive his Bobcat badge. It will be presented to him on Friday at the Pack meeting. As part of that ceremony there is a tradition where the boys are held upside down to receive their badges. LOL I feel for Daddy because Maddy weighs 65 pounds. I'll take pictures and photos and post them this weekend.
Last night he had swimming lessons. Maddy had to swim several lengths of the pool and I'm proud to say he did a really good job. Last week his lesson was cancelled because of a "code brown." Someone had pooped in the pool so they closed it down.
Today afterschool, Maddy joins the school sports program where they get to run around and play all sorts of sports for an hour. Tonight is the Cub Scouts Pack meeting where Maddy will receive his Bobcat badge.
Tommorrow he is going to Gregory's birthday from 12-2pm and on Sunday he has been invited to Danny's birthday from 5.30-7.30pm. It's going to be at 'Ajax Amusements', which is a private party zone featuring classic arcade games, pool table, air hockey, skee ball, bubble hockey, basketball, dance machine, pinball, Xbox, Play station games, WII and many more. Sounds like just the place for boys haha. I'm buggered just thinking about it LOL
Monday is a holiday and I'm sleeping in!

The Den started off with learning the Cub Scout Motto and Cub Scout Salute. Then they were asked if they knew the Pledge of Allegiance, and Maddy put up his hand and when asked to come to the front to demonstrate in front of the class, he quickly said "Oh, ... I forgot." This happened a few times throughout the meeting and when Matt asked him on their way home what happened, he said 'he was too shy'. Hopefully in time he will gain more confidence and not be shy to show and tell the class what he knows.
They also played several games of Quiet Ball (http://www.cbv.ns.ca/sstudies/activities/games/game4.html) and Maddy won, one out of the three games played.
Their homework before the next meeting is to think of one chore they can do with their adult partner, complete it together and discuss certain character connections and responsibilities that come with doing the chores. These family activities are taken from their Tiger Cub Handbook.
At the next Den meeting, they will be going on a short hike and along the way collecting leaves for leaf rubbings (http://herbarium.desu.edu/project_1/page29/page30/page31/page31.html) .
Maddy came home excited and full of energy and said he had a fun night and didn't want it to end.
