Eagle # 3

As I get older I appreciate more and more the wonderful children I have been blessed with. 3 fine sons have worked hard to earn the rank of an Eagle Scout. This past week Andrew received his Award and even though there has been some major nagging involved I am so proud of him and this great accomplishment. I recently got called into scouts and believe it or not it's my first time. I don't know with 3 boys how I managed to never serve in scouts but it really is a great calling. When I bought the new Wolf book, Andrew and I got a big chuckle when reading some of the requirements for a new 8 year old scout.

1a Play catch with someone 10 steps away

1b Walk a line back and forth

1c Do a front roll

1d Do a back roll

1e Do a falling front roll

Boy, these were the "simple" days. The scouting program really has helped mold my boys into fine young men. I'm so grateful for all the leaders who took an interest in my 3 sons and I hope I can help some fine young men get their WOLF badges.

My Mom is amazing! It is tradition that when her grandsons get their eagles she makes them a flag cake. This was cake #11. She is the best grandma and always so willing to be a part of the boys special day.

Congratulations!! You do have the most amazing Mom--you are a lot like her! I miss seeing you around and have to say "cub scouts?"--OK.

I was just telling parker I had never been to a court of honor. Way to go Drew!!! When each of my dad's son in laws has come to ask to marry one of his daughters he asked each of them if they had gotten there Eagle. To him, that's something that is VERY important if they want to marry one of us! :)

Can I get a copy of the picture of with the four boys? If you have any others with Kevin I'd love to have them. Still feel bad that I wasn't able to be there.
