April 12 - It was Bound to Happen Sooner or Later!

On Sunday they announced that I'd been called as the Assistant Den Leader to the Wolves. Hayden looked at me and said, "You're going to be my scout leader?"  I'm not too sure if he's all that excited about that. Okay. . .so I knew it was bound to happen sooner or later. I just was not really ready for it yet. After all, I'm a teacher in Relief Society right now too. Seriously? Two Callings? I didn't see that coming!!

Anyway. . . Tonight I went to my first Pack Meeting as the Assistant Den Leader in the Wolves. AND Now I'm wondering what in the world was I thinking?  I'm really scared!!

Let me just tell you, there are 10 wolves in our group (including Hayden). Did you hear me? Ten 8 year old BOYS!!  Can I just say that saying they are rambunctious is the kindest word I could come up with. Another kind thought is that they are ALL FULL of energy!!  The truth, on the other hand, is that they are ALL completely Out of Control! :D LOL

I wouldn't be so scared if I knew that the current leader and I would be doing it together, but that's just another scary point. She is Big and PregO!! :) She's so cute and being induced on April 25! Which means I'll be doing it by myself for 8 weeks until she comes back from maternity leave.

Can I just ask you now, "What in the world was I thinking saying yes to this calling?!" Yikes!!  I'm a little freaked out right now. These boys are going to be a handful and my new challenge.

Like I said, with three boys in our family, it was bound to happen sooner or later, I'm just not sure I'm ready for this yet. I hope it will all turn out fine. In the meantime, I'm asking for suggestions on how to get these boys under control without handcuffing them all to their chairs. Cause that's what I'm thinking it going to need to happen to get it through another meeting with them!!

You were kind in your description of those boys. They are a handful, but good boys too. You will do a wonderful job! Say what you mean and mean what you say and they will figure out that you mean business. Oh, and LOVE them that goes a long way too!
