I am a scoutleader!!

Yep, you read it right; as of now I am a scoutleader in the Arkhyttan Scoutkår....
New country, new language, new responsibilities and a whole new field for me to operate in!

They've asked me to join them and, allthough I hesitated to accept, one of them talked me into it. I haven't quit figured out why they specifically asked me, but I'm will soon. I am going to give it a go for a season, to see how things work out. Never have worked with kids on this scale, the language might be a problem on quit a few occassions and there might be a cultural barrier too, but hey.... I'm not the kind of person to walk away from a challenge...
I am honoured and exited!

Wish me luck, y'all...


  1. Yay, very cool news! As from what I read on your blog so far I'm sure the kids and you will enjoy :)

  2. Ron, that is awesome! I'm sure you'll do a fine job, even if there are some language hickups and such along the way. :) Plus, your Swedish will probably improve even more just by being a scout leader, so it will get easier and easier.

    I wish you the best of luck with it!

  3. Congratulations and good luck! Well done Ron!

  4. Congratulations, scout system is something i appreciate, although i dont know whats it like today nut i spend good amount of my life in scouts as well. Just dont go in the path of bashing bible & religion in to their heads...theres a few good ones who left the scouts because of religious nonsense.
    Any case, you seem to e reasonable guy and youll propably end up doing the leading more than fine.
