Last Saturday, the cold and darkness brought on by the changing seasons had worked itself into my mind. I felt more than a little grouchy while getting my kids out of bed to go to Lee’s Marketplace in Smithfield. We weren’t shopping that day. Our task was to help with the Cub Scout’s chocolate fundraiser.
Like many a Cache Valley parent, I have a higher-than-average number of kids. That means I participate in a higher-than-average number of fundraisers; two for Hyrum’s swim team, two for Hunter’s Scout troop, one for the school, this one for Coleman and Seth’s the Cub Scouts, and all of those within the past month.
