First, on Saturday, the Scouts and Venturers had a Lego Mindstorms Workshop, and the last-year cubs were invited. This involved making various lego robots, and then programming them.
|Building the Robot|
|Delta has a sense of humour - his caption for this is |
"You thought you were having a bad day"
|Almost done - this robot has a sensor to detect colours.|
|Will Delta's robot follow a black track? I'll never tell!|
|The Finished product|

Next came the scout meeting and.... Archery! This was Delta's first chance at this sport, and he discovered that Legolas makes it look a lot easier than it is.
|Legolas makes this look so easy.....|
A couple of days later - it was the cub meeting night. This one was a special meeting though, as the third year cubs were leaping up to Scouts.

Then the next Saturday, the Scouts (including Delta) were selling hot-dogs and Chocolate Bars to make money for their summer camp in the States! Meanwhile, the Cubs and Beavers were getting pledges for Scoutrees, where they get pledges to plant trees.
And coming up.... Tonight Delta goes to cubs, and I get to receive a Scouting Award from the Lieutenant-Governor for service! Later this week, cub meeting, more chocolate bar sales, and so on....
And yes - we are still doing Homeschooling. Delta is up to the first-quarter test in Math (he started a new level in February) and Echo is close behind. Spelling is going fine. And we are on about week 30 of 36 weeks in our AO years.
