Ty received the rank of Eagle Scout last night after his Eagle Board of Review! yeah!!
It has been a long time coming. I am glad I am the mother of only one boy for this reason only...I could not go through the whole Eagle Scout thing again. For mothers of young boys who would like their son to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout...start YOUNG. Have them get every merit badge possible at the age of 11. It really is quite an accomplishment. There are 325 requirements that a scout needs to accomplish in order to receive the Eagle Scout award. This past year I was wondering if it was all worth it, but last night at the Board of Review, I would have to say it IS. The Court of Honor will be held when all the paper work gets back. Probably in about six weeks. I just want to let Ty know I really am proud of him. I know I gave him a lot of flack during this whole process. I wasn't sure at times if we would both survive, but we did and are both better for it. Love ya Ty!!
