Boyscout campout and learner's permit

April 25th, 2012 at 06:40 am

This last weekend was my youngest son's boyscout crossover. We had a campout at a lake near here. I was assigned to purchase all the food. I spent roughly $160 to feed 40 people. I think I did quite well. There was plenty leftovers, but rather have too much than not enough. We all had a great time and my family and I will probably go back there. I'm not a camping type person but there are cabins there near the lake that we can stay in.

My daughter got her learners permit Monday. She is so excited. There isn't a driving school nearby so parent taught it is. Did this with oldest son a couple of years ago but so much has changed since then. Wish me luck!

Oh, and hubby informed me of some money we should be recieving in July. Raises, backpay and such. Should be quite a bit. Hopefully enough to finish out our emergency fund.

    Wow, you are quite the bargain shopper with the food budget for all those people!

    That was a great job if your efforts lead to leftovers for that many people on that amount of money! Please tell me that it wasn't out of your own pocket... Smile I remember when I crossed from Webelos into Boy Scouts, and it offered me the insurance of many happy memories throughout my years as a boy. I'm glad that there are still young men doing scouting. It's a good program.

    I really learned a lot from your posts. Thanks!

    I would like to see whether you'd be open for guest contributions. I am looking to write something related to your site and thought that the topics I had in mind may go well with your blog.

    I was thinking about the following subjects:

    1. 4 Simple Steps for Teaching Children How to Save Money
    2. Three Easy Ways to Save Money

    What do you think about these? If you're interested to receive a custom article which is also absolutely free, I am happy to get something written up and sent over to you - or if you have another topic you'd like to see covered, I am more than happy to write on that.

    Thanks and I look forward to your response.
