Today we visited the National Scouting Museum! What a great time!


They have the world's largest collection of original Norman Rockwell Scouting artwork, as well as works by Joseph Csatari, Remington Schuyler, and others. The diorama includes a display examining Rockwell's creative process.

Both children are scouts. This is EV's first year as a Cub Scout. Since we are on the road, he is considered a "Lone Scout". This entitles him to all the benefits of regular scouts, and allows him to 'visit' any other local Pack or Den wherever we may be. He is also able to go to any of the camps that are offered at any of the locations. You don't have to be a Lone Scout to do this. JR is in the last year of Brownies and is a "Juliette" Scout. It is the same concept as Cub Scouts. For more information, check out the following websites, but there are a LOT of Lone Scouts and Juliettes:
