1. The Boy Scouts of America Decision
The only thing I will say that sums up my thoughts on this issue is a quote from the founder of On My Honor. This is a paraphrase of what he said; he said that Scouts in not the place for sexuality and politics and activism. And, I totally agree with him. Scouting should be about fun and camping and character development.
One more thing that I think people did NOT understand is that the former policy already allowed for scouts with same sex attraction (which I have No problem with):
The essence of the difference between the old policy and the proposed new policy is that the old policy prohibits “open and avowed” homosexuality for both BSA youth and adult members but the new policy removes that prohibition for boys and requires every BSA unit to accept “open and avowed” homosexual youth up to 17 years old. Importantly, the current policy already allows for BSA members who have a same-sex attraction but do not act out openly or inappropriately to be in good standing and to earn Scouting’s highest rank of Eagle. This is a critical point that has been obscured by pro-resolution advocates but one which is irrefutable.For more on this go here.
2. It is going to get quiet around here.
Lots of new things going on in my life. Between adoption paperwork, working more, swim team starting, homeschooling year round . . .
You get the idea. I will not be posting much. I am going to make a switch to wordpress soon and I feel God moving me in a specific direction right now. I am excited about the changes!
3. Pool opens this weekend
It currently is 56 outside. My kids are more than welcome to jump in the pool and risk hypothermia . . . I think I will wait until the POOL WATER TEMPERATURE is about 80! I feel bad for my boys. Swim team starts next Tuesday. It will be cool all weekend, which means my boys will be BLUE by the end of practice!
4. Waiting . . .
I have talked a lot about waiting on God lately and this is how I feel right now!
5. Run Pretty Far is in the house!
Yesterday I got a BIG box of the cutest running items from Run Pretty Far!! They are not for me, of course, but to sell at the Zooma Annapolis Expo I will be working at next weekend. But, I will say this . . . . I now want EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of RPFs items!! They are adorable!! I think I may need to buy this one first . . .
6. My boys . . .
Will you pray along with me for that miracle???
Pray for little Yi that just arrived at Little Flower Projects. He was born with Down Syndrome.
Have a great weekend everyone!
