But that leads me to the other reason I've been so very busy this month. Pinewood Derby may be the funnest event of the year, but our biggest event is the Blue and Gold Banquet. It's quickly approaching (just two days away!) and being on the Blue and Gold Committee has kept me very busy! I'll hopefully have plenty of pictures to share with you next week after the event, but I have to show you this (really poor quality) photo of the centerpieces Zander made in his den meeting this week.

I'm Zander's den leader this year, so I had to come up with centerpiece ideas. Our theme for the banquet is The Great Outdoors, and some of the other dens have some great centerpieces to match the theme, but I really wanted to make these precious Tigers for one reason. A few years ago, Adisson made this centerpiece as his Tiger centerpiece for the Blue and Gold Banquet. And I just loved it! I'm pretty sure I'm going to post a tutorial on how to make one because I think there are a whole lot of other little Tiger Cubs would love these guys! (Also--this wasn't an original idea of mine. I wish I knew who thought of it because they are brilliant and I would love to thank them!)
Anyway, between homeschool, work, Adam's work schedule, snow days, and being very busy with our biggest Cub Scout events, this has been a hectic month. Sometimes, being busy wears on me a tiny bit, but I love it. I love my sons, I love my sweet little Tiger Cubs, and I love the 47 other Cub Scouts I get to see every Tuesday night. It may be busy, but it sure is fun!!
