My Home Teaching companion wanted to try out his new Bar B Que so we invited our Home Teaching charges for dinner. I made my Peanut Butter-Toffee Cheesecake Brownies and Shelly Larsen's Peanut Butter Cup Pie (Thanks Shelly!) both turned out well. Here's the recipe for the Peanut Butter-Toffee Cheesecake Brownies for those interested. Very good, but very rich! http://www.pillsbury.com/recipes/peanut-butter-toffee-cheesecake-brownies/f0b18bef-197d-4955-8347-7970c58188de?src=SH

This Pack Meeting has the usual round of awards for both boys, but more importantly they started Scout Popcorn sales and said that the boys can work for prizes! We went out Saturday and already got $290.00 between the two of them, they plan on working together for a bigger prize.
They also had some cooperation activities
Ben's group won this one, they had to fold and stack paper to hold up a paperback book, the highest one won.
I've been volunteer teaching cartooning in Ben and Nathan's classes ever since Ben started Acacia 5 years ago, but this year the PTA (Potty Training Association as I taught my boys to call it LOL) fundraised and got these awesome Promethean Boards for the classrooms its like drawing on a giant tablet with a drawing program that's a lot like drawing in Photoshop. I usually teach them to draw something from their imagination and then a commercial character. We focus a lot on shapes, dominant mass (the big shape) and other important principles that I've learned in various Character Design classes that I've taken. With these new boards I think that I'll now teach them some color and composition stuff.
