Neil and I finished our second weekend staffing Wood Badge the weekend while Aaron was in DC and before Spring Break began. Neil's mom took care of the kids for us again. She noticed how much easier it was the previous weekend when she had Aaron to help. Sometimes I wonder if he's more of a help or a hindrance, but it appears that he is missed when he's not around.
The second weekend the staff is more hands-off with the participants than during the first weekend as they are out working as patrols camping in tents. I had been fighting a toothache, which eventually resulted in another root canal, so late nights and pain weighed down on me. I found if I downed about 800 mg of ibuprofen every 4 hours kept me pain free. Nothing I could do about the late nights though. It was a fantastic experience anyway and I am looking forward to another opportunity to be on staff - though I think I'll wait a year or so before that happens.
I am still trying to figure out the best way for the participants and staff to view the multitude of pictures we took. I'm thinking of using a website but we do have a couple who do not have internet access. Other courses have made CDs and that may be the route to go, but of course I have to figure out the technology to best do that.
