Theme:  When I Grow Up
by Scott Thayer Sequoia Council, California


In the popular movie ďBig,Ē actor Tom Hanks plays the part of Josh, a boy who gets catapulted into the future after making a wish at a carnival.  That night, Josh went to bed as a boy but he woke up the next morning as a full-grown man!  At first, his new life was fun and exciting, but after a while Josh realized that he had been robbed of his boyhood.  He never had those early years of thinking and dreaming about what kind of a person he wanted to be someday.  Everybody in his life expected Josh to be an adult, but he had not learned how.  This story reminds us that itís not good to grow up too fast.  Boys should enjoy being kids.  They should try doing a lot of different things;  give themselves a chance to succeed at some things but not to be too hard on themselves when they fail at other things.  God created boys to be kids first and adults later.  So donít be afraid to dream big things for your future, but remember that for the present you are a kid.  Have fun and enjoy every minute!

Narrator: Whatever we want to be in the future, keep in mind:

1st Cub: "D" stands for doctor.  I'll try to help sick people.

2nd Cub: "O" stands for operator.  I want to operate a big crane.

3rd Cub: "Y" stands for youth.  When I grow up I want to work with young people.

4th Cub: "O" stands for outdoors.  I want to work outdoors when I grow up.  I could be a lifeguard or a forest ranger.

5th Cub: "U" stands for under.  Strange, but I like submarines.  I will try to work under water.

6th Cub: "R" stands for reporter.  I like to write and I want to work for a newspaper.

7th Cub: "B" stands for baseball.  I hope to be a ball player.

8th Cub: "E" stands for engineer.  I would like to build.  That's the job for me.

9th Cub: "S" stands for sailor.  I want to sail on a ship.

10th Cub: "T" stands for teacher.  I hope to grow up to be a teacher.

Narrator: So Cubs, "Do Your Best" whatever you do.

All answer: "We'll do our best!"
