The aftermath of AJ
So, I sent a shiny clean young chap to the Australian Scout Jamboree.
And this is what was returned to me! A smelly and VERY dirty young man.
The message sent ahead to parents was not to wear light colored clothes for a first hug with their returned scout, and I can understand why!
He seems to have grown while he was in South Australia, rolling and rolling in dust, and had a really good time too.
He went straight from car to the laundry, emptied his bag of clothes, new treasures and a whole load of red SA dirt.
Next, into the shower.
Having washed himself 'boy clean', he appeared in the kitchen - ravenous for food- only to be returned to the shower to become 'mum clean'. I didn't have the heart to send him back for a third shower, but it was still needed!
Welcome home A, dirt and all!
