Boy Scouts

Robert and Jonathan have recently started Boy Scouts. They really enjoy it. Robert carries his Webelos book with him often and will just start working on the badges. They recieved their first badge last night at the pack meeting. Jonathan was so excited. He expected the whole family to go, but Mark was out of town and Raeley and Cameron stayed home. Talking to his sisters he said, "I just don't think you realize what a big night this is. We are getting our first Boy Scout badge. This is the only time it's going to happen. You only get a badge for the first time once!"

Tonight we went to a City Council meeting on behalf of the Boy Scouts. I am glad the City Council was proficient with the meeting, it was less than an hour. It was neat to see how many men on City Council saluted the Boy Scout Salute when they said the Pledge of Allegiance.

Kristie, Robert reminds me of Ryan with Boy Scouts. He was so excited and absolutely loved it. I still have his book, badges, etc. What a precious thing for Jonathon to say! I totally agree - That was a big night. "You only get a badge for the first time once!"
