After plowing out the driveway today, I headed to the townhouse with the kids and we cleaned out the desks and misc stuff that was in there. Our rental is finally ready for someone to move in and this was the last bit of stuff we needed to do.

Afterwards we headed out to Wal-Mart and Dick's Sporting Goods, getting groceries as well as a bunch of stuff for Delaney to go camping. He has to show up Tues night with his stuff packed and ready for the campout so he can be checked out. He was excited to get a backpack, and surprised that we spent $100 on one. As we were looking, there were only a couple models that had external frames, and the cheapest one was $80. He thought we wouldn't spend it, but I said it was worth it.

I remember going out with Kyle and getting him set for Scouts. At the time he had wanted to quit after Cub Scouts, and so we weren't sure he's stick it out. His troop allowed a duffel bag, and so we went with that, thinking that he could use the duffel even if he quit. He made it for 6 months or so, but then decided it wasn't for him, and that was fine. It's not for everyone.

Delaney's excited, and he wants to be a military soldier someday, so I'm hoping I haven't made a bad investment here. We'll see, and I'm looking forward to seeing how he does at camp this weekend.
