Changes Are Constent

Changing interests and focuses in our lives make life more interesting and FUN. With that in mind I have added a couple more blogs: Preschool Learning Adventure and Mama's Reading Nook both are linked to Primarily A Mama blog. This will stay as my main page, but the others you can access through the tabs above. I will make excerpt posts here for each post written on the other blogs and link them so you can just click and go. I hope this will help keep things better organized and clean looking for myself and all of you.


**This is a work in progress**

I am working on a massive cleaning house project and found some of these documents in a box I received when I was a Cub Scout leader. Some are good resources I would like to keep just in case, I go back.  I don't want to keep as paper form, since it is taking up space I don't have,

My hope is that some one out there can use some of this information also.

Click on the links to be taken to the Google Document. If you encounter any problems please let me know.

All applause and cheers that I have collected. I have set up the doc so you can just print and cut out.  

Cub Master Minutes: 

  • Smile:   A smile costs nothing but creates much.  It happens in a flash, but the memory sometimes lasts forever.  It cannot be begged, bought, borrowed, or stolen. It is something that is not good to anyone unless it is given away.  So, if you meet someone who is too weary to give you a smile, leave one of yours.  No one needs a smile quite as much as a person who has none to give.
  • Cheerful: We have a choice.  We can be pleasant or unpleasant. Which do you chose?  You can be grouchy and grumpy, or you can be happy and cheerful.  It is up to you.
  • Good Deeds:  Lord Baden-Powell, the founder if Scouting, said this to Scouts everywhere; "I often think when the sun goes down, the world is hidden by a big blanket from the light of Heaven.  The stars are little holes pierced in that blanket by those who have done good deeds in this world.  The stars are not all the same size. some are big, some are little, and some men done small deeds but they have made their hole in the blanket by doing good before they went to Heaven."  (Crossroads of America Council, 1995)
  • Honesty:  Lord Baden-Powell, the founder if Scouting, said: " Honesty is a form of Honor.  An honorable man can be trusted with any amount of money or other valuables with the certainty that he will not steal it."  When you feel inclined to cheat in order to win a game, just say to yourself, "After all its only a game.  It won't kill me if I lose."  If you keep your head this way, you will find that you are the winner after all. 
  • A Link in the Chain: Equipment: Paper strips and tape.   Invite everyone to come and add there link to the chain.  When the chain is made explain that "a chain is only as strong as it's weakest link." even paper chains.  The real joy of (cub) scouting come when complete unity exists between parents, cub scouts, and leaders.  Every parent and boy can help Scouting keep America strong by learning more about and understand our great heritage. Remember to DO YOUR BEST!
  • The words "Aim for the Stars" have an important meaning to Cub Scouts. Think of Thomas Edison who tried and failed hundreds of times before he perfected the electric light bulb. He never quite trying.  A Cub Scout who tries to do his best and keeps trying is preparing himself for greater responsibilities when he become a man. What you do and how well you do it becomes your launching pad to "aim for the stars." 
  • "Give us, O God, the vision which can see Thy love in the world in spite of human failure.  Give us the faith to trust Thy goodness in spite of our ignorance and weakness. Give us the knowledge that we may continue to pray with understanding hearts, and show us what each one of us can do to set forward the coming of universal peace."  (prayer which was broadcast to earth by astronaut Frank Borman while on a moon-orbiting mission) 
  • We have talked about what life will be like in the future. Let's take a few minutes for the present time.  A person's perception of time keeps shifting.  As the very old can tell you, time goes more swiftly the longer you live.  An old man can look at a forest and remember when, in his childhood, that land was a plowed field.  Time becomes telescoped, not by failing facilities, but by overlapping images. Each age offers a different vision which you can capture, barrow, and savor.  The point is this - somewhere along the way, each individual needs to recognize that there are such a thing as personal time.  Immediate events ranging from toothaches to a far-reaching political crisis cannot be set aside.  We really have a great deal of leeway in choosing what we do with our time.  If you have been thinking about getting outdoors more often, have you set aside the time? 

Words of Wisdom - 

  • Coming together is a beginning.  Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.   (quote from Henry Ford)
  • The Spirit of Scouting is you give all that you have got to serve others, and you never quit. (Hal Johnston, May 28, 1979)
  • Praise does wonders for a boy's sense of hearing.
  • Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones.
  • The reason people don't see things in the right perspective is that they are always looking for an angle.
  • It takes two to speak truth - One to speak and one to hear.
  • A tactful person is like a pin - his head prevents him from going to far.
