Scouting Push and Soap

My educational priority this week is scouting stuff. The scout year is coming to an end, and crossover is on the 17th. Each boy just has a couple of things left to earn their ranks for the year. They will be moving to the next level and will not be able to back up and earn these ranks after that. Today, I will be making a list of what I need to do with each one, and that’s what I’ll be working on until it’s done. I don’t want to be skating in on the 16th, either, so I am really going to focus on having it all done as soon as possible, and not later than Saturday. If I can get DD#1 to help with a little baby-sitting, it should be sooner than that!

Then I will need to plan something fun for the girls. I’ve been wanting to do some soaps with them since they were way too little to do such a thing, and then they got big enough, and I got too busy. I’m thinking I may pick up supplies to do that sometime this week, and next week we’ll take a chance to do that. I’m trying to teach them to do things that will be profitable later. I’ve read just this morning about a couple in Hawaii who are marketing handmade soap with some success, and I will share that information with them as well.

So, that’s my teaching agenda, and we’ll also be doing as much of the regular stuff as we can squeeze in.
