G had a great time. His CI worked. The other two boy in his troop were in a group together. G was in a group with 5ish completely new kids. He finished his blowgun first and decorated it orange and blue. He won a chocolate easter bunny for singing a song. He sang the Wacky-acky-acky song he learned a few years ago at cub scout camp.
G is deaf. His life certainly has some challenges. I'm so grateful that he can take on hard situations and have a great time. He is unabashed and enjoys volunteering. Scouting is a great activity for him to deal with communication and relationship situations that don't just depend on intelligence or athletic skill.
I was initially dismayed that the two boys in his troop weren't with him but were with each other. But G did fine. He didn't have anyone who knows him in past settings to set expectations on his communication, or speak for him. G can speak for himself, thank you very much!
