Building a tower to reach heaven, with hopefully better results

Venturers Ben, T.C., Jeffrey, Art, and Pat, Scouts Zach and T.J., and High School youth Alex and Matthew got the tower up for Scout Sunday, under the admiring gaze of Moms Kara, Lori, and Julie and Junior High youth Abby and Neely.

It took us an hour and a half or so just to get the structure up, which isn't bad. What can I say? We're good. After we finished, there was still lasagne left over from the UMW lunch and we chowed down on that, a well-earned reward.

Rougher! Tougher! Buffer!
