Boy Scout camp was at our house

 We hosted Boy Scout camp for our ward and one other ward for 5 days in July.  All the cooking and eating was done around the garage.  It was pouring rain every single day.

 Merit badge classes were held on our front porch and our screened porch and other places.  I couldn't look out any window without seeing bunches of boys and leaders everywhere.

 They held flag ceremonies every morning and evening.

The archery merit badge and fishing merit badges were taught in the front pasture and at the pond.

I got no pictures of the horsemanship merit badge, which was taught near our barn and in the adjoining pasture.  Our friends brought 2 horses over for the week.  It was raining so constantly that I never went out there.

All in all, I think it was a good experience for everyone.  The only lasting consequence was that we had a lot of flies in our garage and in our house for a few weeks afterward, but now they are all gone so life is normal again.
