    • Of course that's not enough said! I'd have this conversation with the scout: Me [in my sternest stop-wasting-matches voice]: Scout, did some of my money that I spent on your popcorn actually go to some old folks so they could party up at Christmas? Scout: Sir, yes sir. It did. But that was before strangers on the internet accused me for misappropriation ... Me: Keep it up. And double my order for next year.
    • In this town, there's a special word for such armchair crumudgeons, I won't waste it here. The day that scouting serves only scouts is the day I turn in my Fleur-de-lis. 'Nuff said.
    • Son #1 [sometime between 4th and 6th grade while we were walking to see fireworks]: Why did you make us read the whole Declaration of Independence before we could have dessert? Me: Well, it is Independence Day. Son #1: But we read this stuff in school. Me: So, did you read it in school this year? Son #1: No. Me: I like when you answer your own question.
    • Thanks for all the comments - this has gone a wee bit off topic.... There is still a bunch about the Summit session that I dont know yet, but I see in the schedule that participants get to visit the Consol Energy Bridge, the Sustainability Treehouse and get to ride the Big Zip.  
    • Don't know about the US Citizenship test, but when I had a group of 5 HS aged Scouts who had Civics already and a 5th grade homeschooled Webelos, NONE of the HS students could talk to me about the various components of the Cit Nat MB, except their favorite monument in DC, which we did the day before. The 5th grader on the other the other hand, did know the answers and could talk about them.
