End of an Era: I'm Beaverless

tearI just got back from taking my daughter to her last Beavers meeting of the year. It's actually her last Beavers meeting ever. After being a trail blazer for a year, my daughter has decided there are just too many boys in Beavers and she'd rather join Sparks next year.

I don't know what a Spark is, exactly, but I understand it doesn't leave any room for daddy. Since my son left Scouts Canada after two years for indoor soccer, my daughter was my last connection to the annual camping trip I love so much. After three great years, I'm done.

It's the end of an era, I'm now officially Beaverless.

Can you not volunteer Mike? Even though you won't have a family member involved, they can always use good seasoned help.

I don't think Sparks excludes Fathers...much like guides and brownies more of the mothers are involved and fathers sometimes feel alienated..like your daughter in beavers.As a kid I did both - scouting and baseball. I kept up the scouting primarily for the camping trips

Sparks are sooo cute! Get ready to sell a lot of cookies.
