I really enjoyed the TOS article by Jay from Cleveland on Boy Scouting. Scouts has been an integral part of our homeschooling life. We are so blessed to have our own homeschooling Cub Scout pack and Boy Scout troop. Scouting is woven into the very fiber of our family life. We have met so many of our closest friends through scouting and we continue to foster those friendships. I can't even begin to describe the impact that Scouting has had on our life! Here are a few photos that show the progression of Jesse from the early years of Cub Scouting until now. The second picture shows Jesse crossing over from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts. The middle photo is of Jesse and his Cubmaster, his Dad. The Troop picture was taken at the March Court of Honor. The hats were donated to our troop by a state trooper.
Last night Troop 442 had its first Eagle Scout Court of Honor. It was just beautiful. I know that every parent in there was imagining the day when our guys are the ones receiving this highest award! It was awesome to see Adam achieving this, remembering him from Jesse's first year in Cub Scouts when he was the Den Chief. Such an amazing success!
(I couldn't blog about Scouting without talking about American Heritage Girls because this is as much a part of our family as Boy Scouts. But I've already blogged extensively about AHG. I do intend to send a note on the Teacher's Lounge to spread the word to homeschoolers about AHG, though!)
