Last weekend I finally got to feel that warm, fuzzy feeling that every Boy Scout parent looks forward to, a complete Eagle project. With football season finally behind us he was able to get things scheduled do the work. Drew tried to complete it in October but there was an event at the camp so we had to reschedule. Thirty eight people from the Troop, Crew and my work in addition to family showed up to help. It only took us about 4 hours and everything was complete. I was very thankful that we had so many people show up and give their time to make it possible. Next up, final Eagle board in December.
This has been a very good week in Scouting around our house. On Monday our youngest son, Cameron, earned the rank of Second Class. Not too bad for a Scout that just crossed over in February. Tonight our oldest son, Drew, had is Eagle project Proposal approved at the Eagle boards. We have been waiting a long time for this and we are stoked! Finally, Carly has begun work on her Girl Scout Bronze Award. The only downer is that once she completes it she has chosen not to continue on in Girl Scouts but is excited that our Venturing Crew I once again active and will be in full swing once she is 14. Mom and Dad can’t quit smiling!
Just a quick update on Drew’s Eagle Project. He is headed to the Eagle Board of Review on Tuesday to have his project proposal approved. If it is approved he hopes to complete the project sometime in the next 30-60 days depending on his fundraising and donations. He will be rebuilding a parking lot and making it handicap accessible. The project is located at Camp Dakani which is a local Camp Fire camp. It has been a long road and hopefully he is just one step closer.
