Nelson with his red boat.
Last week was Nelson's scout raingutter regatta. He was able to race his boat a few times. Unfortunately he can be extremely competitive and can get upset easily when he doesn't win so he did have to learn the lesson that we don't always get to win and it is more for the fun. I really appreciate some of the boys like Ben Sorenson who helped Nelson to realize this. When this realization came to him he truely did have fun racing and cheering his pack mates on.
The scouting program haas been wonderful for Nelson. I look forward to see how he continues to grow and progress in his life through this program.
