Samuel the Scout

When I was in Girl Scouts, I hated selling cookies and did miserably! Samuel is VERY excited about popcorn sales for Cub Scouts. He begs us to go selling with him and would do it for hours if we'd comply. Tonight our neighbor girl came over to play and when Samuel walked to her house, her mom still wasn't coming home. While he was taking his shower she came back to say her mom was home. I have Samuel the option of waiting to go and writing spelling words 3 times tonight or going tonight to talk to her and writing them 5 times tomorrow before school. After he though about it a few minutes he decided it would be worth it to go tonight. So, he dons the full regalia and asked me to help him with his collar. Off he went only to return with no order. The great thing about this kids is that things just roll off him. He feels no sense of rejection and is looking for the next person to order from.
If you have a hankering for some good Cub Scout popcorn, give us a shout! And as Samuel likes to tell people- if you don't like popcorn, you can send $25 and popcorn will be donated those in the military and their families! Thanks for supporting Troup 80.
