Scouts Meeting: Easter Style One of the things I look forward to after a rough week of classes is Scouts. This week though, was one I had been eagerly anticipating since it was the Thursday before Easter. Unfortunately I was unable to go home and visit my mom and brother for the weekend and I viewed this meeting as a surrogate holiday. Being a freshman in college is rough because it’s essentially the first of little holidays, celebrations and get togethers with my family that I won’t be able to attend. I never truly realized how many of the events we had until my floor mates would have their family come and visit or they’d go home for the weekend. Even though I couldn’t be with my mom for easter, I knew I was with part of my family here on campus. And I have come to view the scouts as an extension of that family. I enjoyed hiding easter eggs filled with candy for them and I enjoyed even more seeing the excitement that they had when they walked into the room and saw some eggs right away. I now think I understand why my mom goes through so much effort to try and send me something when I cant be at home. It’s not so much the being there or the giving of gifts in some form, but it’s the thought that you are brightening the day of someone who matters to you. Being able to make the scouts smile really made my day and I couldn’t think of a better way to end my Thursdays. Krissy Krause- Krissy
