Tonight the cubs had to present the program themselves. They did fairly well with everything except for the lesson part. Naturally many many of them didn't bother to do their assignments. Akela made them contribute SOMETHING to the lesson anyway, so at least they didn't get an easy out.
Then we ate gummy worms and sang songs. As follows...
*sung to the tune of Clementine*
In a castle, on a mountain
Near the dark and murky Rhine
Dwelt a doctor, the concoctor
Of the monster, Frankenstein.
In a graveyard near the castle
Where the moon refused to shine
He dug for noses and for toeses
For his monster, Frankenstein.
*sung to the tune of Frere Jacques*
Worms and spiders, worms and spiders
Creep and crawl, creep and crawl
Put them in my pocket, put them in my pocket
*spoken, which for boys means yelled very loud* - OOOPS!
Squashed them all! Squashed them all!
*sung to the tune of Auld Lang Syne*
Should old worn sneakers be thrown out
Or stink upon a shelf?
Should holey, moldy, gym socks walk
To the washer by themselves?
My smelly shoes, so torn and rank
How comf'table to me!
My gym socks match them perfectly
Let's my piggies wiggle free!
