Never too young to start

Daniel attended his first Venturing meeting today -- at two years old. He thought our car was the best. Mommy and Daddy are Venturers from way back, of course.

Grandbear (myself) thinks Daniel should be old enough to go camping soon; after all, his mother started when she was three. His mother, Anna, went on to earn her Silver Award in Venturing in April, 2000, and her Ranger Award shortly after that. She was the first in our Council to do so.
