our family is having quite a dilemma right now?

Jacob is about to make the switch from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts?

when they make the transition, they get to decide where they would like to join Boy Scouts at and visit several other Troops in the area?

our pack has a troop attached to it, but we aren't sure if we want to move on there?

there is a really outspoken mom that is quite involved and I just don't know if we want to deal with that?

also, to complicate things, Larry has stepped down as Cubmaster?

after 5 years, he's burned out? he gets very little help and he's tired of struggling along?

there is no one that wants to step to the plate to keep things moving?

so Larry is thinking we may need to make a clean break? or else he will never ever get the ability to hand over the torch?

so, essentially, he's thinking we should move Jacob to a new Troop and Cooper to a new pack? a fresh start?

but there is a lot of guilt involved in that?

no decision has to be made about Cooper yet since Larry is sticking around until the end of the school year?

but a decision for Jacob needs to be made in the next month?

I'm so conflicted on what to do?

all of the boys that Jacob has been in scouts with to this point will be moving to the troop that is connected to the pack?

which makes me feel that maybe we should just keep him there- with his peer group?

thanks for listening to my rambling? I'm just so torn!

...Alex went to the allergist on Friday?

...they're doing a blood test for latex allergy rather than the skin test?

...so we won't have an answer for a couple of weeks?

...I was kind of bummed about that?

...Pippi seems to be feeling somewhat better?

...she's acting more like herself and doesn't sound as congested?

...she's on an antibiotic and an ant-iinflammatory, so I'm not sure which is making the difference?

...I just hope whatever is going on is actually getting better and that it's not just the anti-inflammatory masking the symptoms?

...I've been so worried about her?

...Alex and I should be at church right now?

...but it is almost noon and he is still sleeping?

...I tried several times to get him up to no avail?

...sigh?

...I've been getting a lot of organizing done in the kitchen this weekend?

...I moved a lot of things around to different cabinets and such?

...I think it's going to work much better for me this way?

...I've yet to get any actual cleaning done in there, though?

...the organization was a much bigger job than I had realized?

I think so?

we are going to stick with the troop connected to our cub scout pack?

we let Jacob decide, and that's what he really wanted to do?

fingers crossed it is the right decision?

it is very worrisome when the furry family members aren't well?

I'm glad to hear that she's doing better?

hopefully it continues?

wow!

I keep saying I can't wait until my boys sleep in?

but I can see how the sleeping till noon or later can be frustrating as well?
