Sounds good MWL!  You are the one using and shooting with this stuff so by all means get what works best for you and have a blast!!  SmugMug is great too.  My concern has always been keeping ownership of the images and keeping pictures of the scouts off of billboards, wheaties boxes, etc.  Always ready/glad to help when I'm available and not on campouts, etc.   :D
Yes, but what would  surapon  say ??  :D

Get a SunPak RD2000 Flash for walk around fill flash and a bunch of eneloops.
I'd recommend the Canon 90EX (from the EOS M) over the Sunpak, a little bit more cash, but down the track you can use it as an optical off-camera flash trigger for the EX series - works brilliantly on my 6D for that purpose

The 90EX is larger, twice the price and doesn't pivot which is critical to me.  I also have the StoFen diffuser on it all the time.  I have some very detailed reviews up on Adorama, B&H, etc.  You can get a small RD2000 with the diffuser for less than $100.
I think you're thinking of the 270EX... the 90 is a little smaller, cost me ~$100, while it doesn't have a diffuser or  tilt, it's light, and i find the wireless E-TTL a big advantage when using with my 560/600EX flashes
