Mouse Scout meetings can be so boring. Miss Poppy just talks and talks. I like it better when we are busy earning badges. It can be hard work, but the badges look pretty on my sash, so it is worth it.

Sometimes Mouse Scouts is sort of dirty.  Like when we went camping? And it rained? There was so much mud!  I do not like camping. At least, not in the wilderness. If we could have soft beds with satin sheets it might be okay.
