I LOVE My Eagle Scout
I couldn't be more proud of S right now. Last night we had his Eagle Court of Honor. This guy has been self - motivated from the moment he entered Boy Scouts. He had hoped to earn his Eagle while he was 12, but missed it by a couple months, earning it just after he turned 13.
S is a good example to his younger brothers and I heard them talking last night about when they get their Eagle.
There are so many people that made this happen. From his leaders to those who helped me set up, we couldn't have done it without you.
His scout leaders push him towards greatness. Sister Scout herself is in our ward and helped him -- and me through every step. She was also down at the church setting up with another Scout Elf friend of mine while I was getting T's foot cast. Sister Scout and her Scout Elf took care of so many loose ends -- even right down to holding my 2 yr old so I could enjoy the program.
S kept saying all the way home, "That was so fun."
I had asked Brother Vocal to sing the National Anthem, which he did beautifully. But I forgot to arrange for someone to lead and play the closing song. Thankfully, he stepped up and took care of that for us.
S's uncle gave presented the award to him. Another uncle gave him the Eagle Challenge. His scoutmaster, who S presented his Mentor Pin to, gave him the Eagle Charge and Reaffirmation.
