Gage receiving his awards from the Cubmaster.
These are the awards that Gage received tonight. The Cubmaster asked Gage to go over to his mother, the den leader, and raise her hand. (I immediately got red in the face and was embarrassed. Scott is the den leader, not me!) However, I have been the one reading through the materials figuring out what awards Gage and his fellow den-mates can get. I had mentioned to the Cubmaster in an email that I was a bit of an over-achiever as I'm sure he had already figured out, because I had sent him quite a few emails this summer to make sure they knew who has earned what in our den and asking different questions. He told the group he would like to see more over-achievers. Uh, yeah......................I really don't think you want a whole group of anal retentive parents like me!!!! LOL!
Scott (and I) are in charge of the popcorn fundraiser this year, as well as the candy bar fundraiser that takes place in Feb. Popcorn sales start SOON, so get ready! :-) The top prize this year for the popcorn fundraiser is a Nintendo DS lite! Gage really wants it! I told him that if he was going to earn that, he was going to have to really work hard! (It only requires $2300 worth of sales!!!! YIKES!!!) I suppose if he gets any of my anal-retentive/over-achiever-type traits, it is possible! However, I seriously doubt it!
