Newest Eagle Scout

My son has finally finished everything to receive his Eagle Scout award. He had his board of review last night, so everything is in place. I know that many people think that the mother deserves most of the credit, but in my son's situation, that wasn't the case. His father nagged, but that's about it. He just got this in under the wire...two days to spare. He did have one slight hang up that wasn't his fault, so would have had it finished sooner. But I do appreciate the board in working with him to make sure he got this done in time. Now we just wait for the official say from the National Scout council, and we can have the Eagle court of honor. It has been a long time coming, but I knew he could do it.

Yay!!! Congrats to all of you. Having four eagle scouts for brothers, I know how much work goes into those projects. In fact, the next time you go to Temple Hill to see the Christmas display, take some time to admire the stable that crosses the water. That was my youngest brother's project. :)
