Boy Scout Advancements

N is being presented with 2 Eagle Required merit badges (Communications & Emergency Preparedness) AND with his advancement to LIFE scout. We are so proud of all of his hard work. He nearly missed the opportunity to advance at this Court of Honor. He had his meeting with the merit badge counselor for the communications merit badge AFTER his Board of Review, however, they let him do another Board of Review in order to advance. We are very grateful to his leaders for accommodating him.

Here, we listen to the Scoutmaster as B is presented with both his Tenderfoot AND 2nd Class Ranking advancements. Unfortunately, since we were on vacation during THE only camp out last summer for the 11 year old scouts, B had to wait more than 6 months for the next one, thus delaying his opportunity to advance. He is currently working on a few merit badges, and is looking forward to Scout Camp in June so that he will have the opportunity to finish some merit badges. I told him that he can pick whatever merit badges he wants, but that he MUST do the Environmental Science one. That's best done at scout camp!

We have a great Scoutmaster -- who works hard for these boys. Thanks, Steve!!

100 Days of School

I'm late on posting this! When I picked up T from school on the "100th Day of School", he had his 100 hat and 100 glasses. If you notice in these pictures, he wanted to put on his disguise glasses/mustache, too! He got those from his last visit to the dentist (no cavities, by the way!!). I cannot believe we are already past the 100 day mark. This year has FLOWN by.

Special Valentine's Delivery

When I picked T up from school today, this is what he was wearing! Each classmate made one. So cute!! It reads:

There's a Valentine
Standing at your door.
I'm one of a kind
You can't buy me at a store.

I have something for you
That you just won't want to miss.
Just pucker up
And give me a
