Too much fun

My son bridged from being a webelo to a full fledged boy scout in May. In that time he’s been on four camping trips with his troop.
At the end of each trip, he, as well as the other scouts, were exhausted from merit badge activities and late nights of s’mores, ghost stories and snipe hunts.

They all looked a bit like those pictures of shellshocked soldiers with their thousand-yard stares, shuffling around like zombies. When we picked him up from the Bodega Bay outing, it was no different. When we opened up the trunk of our car to load up his gear, he plopped down into it for a short cat nap. We drove him and some other scouts home (boys in front, their backpacks and sleeping bags in the back). They mostly slept in their seats, and the trip back was much quieter than the one up.
