Venturing Crew 1948 went horse back riding this week!
In The Boy Scouts of America we know that the number one quality kids need to be able to have as an adult is the ability to do hard things.
The things they learn might be as easy as horse back riding or as hard as climbing an imposing cliff. Maybe they will sum up the courage to jump off of a 100 foot high tower to race across a mile long wire suspended high above the earth while zip-lining at 50 miles per hour (surrounded by trees!).
Whatever we plan to do with our kids, let's remember that in the process we are teaching them (and ourselves) to do hard things!
The hard things we do now are how we will Be Prepared for hard things in the future.
