Merit Badge Updates
I took a few pictures of our merit badge activity we did this morning: the track. Among a few other requirements for their "health and exercise" badge, they each had to run/walk the track three different times - doing as many laps as old they are.
Jonas is usually the slowest poke. In fact, Emmy once finished her 8 laps before he had done his 6. But that's okay. But today!? Wow, Emmy must have revved him up because he stayed with her the whole time and did a whole lot more running than well, than ever. It was pretty cool and he seemed happy!
first time when he ran 2.5 miles and walked 0.5 (surpassing his required 8 laps by 4). I was really hoping he'd have a little bit of a runner in him, but who knows. He's still young. :) He still does well and runs and walks and doesn't complain much.
We've still got lots to do, like memorizing poems, building a bird house (we've started at least!), journaling about some nature walks, cleaning up a park, etc.
We'll keep on keeping on those merit badges and see what we get done!
