Happy Halloween!

We had a nice Halloween this year. We all went to the American Embassy School's "Fall Fiesta." This is essentially a giant kids Halloween romp. All of the students wear their costumes. There are games, prizes, contests and a lot of kid friendly food.
This year Evan went as a ghoul....
And Audrey went as a Vampiress. One of her favorite incarnations! Audrey also went trick or treating with her friend Mariam on the AES Campus. Both the kids helped me design this year's pumpkin. (banner photo)
Happy Halloween!

First Scouting Merit Badge!

Evan and I recently joined New Delhi's Pack 3060 Boy Scout Troop. Evan is a Bear Cub and I have become an Assistant Den Leader for the third graders. We meet about 3 times a month and usually do an additional activity as well... this month we are doing a hike at a local Delhi wildlife sanctuary... next month a camp out in Faridabad, etc.
At this month's pack meeting Evan was awarded his first merit badge: The Bobcat! In order to earn the badge, Evan had to learn the Cub Scout Promise, Pack Law, Motto, hand shake and salute among other things! He did a great job!
The boys in our "Bear Den" are from all over the world including India, the US, Nepal, England, Australia and South Korea! The boys are all in the third grade.
