Whittling and wind power

A pocketknife, a windmill and being behind bars at the local Border Patrol's holding cell were the highlights our recent Scouting outings.

Rikard recently earned his Bobcat Badge and chips (or segments) for law enforcement, whittling and collecting canned goods for a local food drive.

Before the boys could collect their whilttling chip, they had to recite a pledge. He basically promised to take care of the knife, treat it with respect and use it safely. HOWEVER - there is always a however with our son - he's already broken the tip off his knife, usually leaves it out in the shop and is constanly nagging us to get him a bigger knife so he can whittle bigger sticks.
