What do I know?

A scouter in our ward wanted to see who would be helpful in teaching boyscouts to get their merit badge. He asked if we knew how to do any of these things. What an an eye opener of things I never knew I never knew. Well, ok, I knew I didn't know about Cinematography or farm mechanics or most of the things on the list. I just didn't know the list of things I didn't know was this long.
How many of these things do you think you could teach a bit on?
Do you think its too late to get started learning such a list?
That would be. . .good fun?

Looks like brain candy. It's never too late. I bet you actually could teach most of the stuff on the list just cuz it's so easy to find basic, general information about any subject on the internet.

P.S. I love your baby pic. I totally remember you at that age. I remember the house that we lived in where that picture was taken. I love my baby sister!

I only feel educated enough to teach 4 of the sujects, but I could easily add some more with just a little of study. I agree, there should be adult merit badges that we have to accomplish...oh wait, that is called life, and being a parent and spouse. However we don't get a cool shash with badges to show or accomplishments. I WANT A SHASH!!!!!

You sends out a list of everything in the alphabet? I like the lists that say "What can you teach?" Then I make my list of the few things that I feel good about and tada I feel good about myself and the Scouts know what I can do!
