Day 98: I'm a Tenderfoot
Patrol meetings and boards of review this evening.
Waiting outside with a scout's father, he came out of his board of review and said, "I'm a Tenderfoot!" with a huge grin on his face. It will be quite awhile before I forget that smile and the hug his dad gave him. It was a good reminder that every step on the trail is a new one for the person taking it.
Chatted with a scout about his eagle project idea.
Helped a patrol figure out their merit badges to take at summer camp.
Talked with another patrol about possibly merging so they could pursue the National Honor Patrol award they want.
Spent some time whittling yet another Eagle gift this afternoon, after I took our lawnmower apart, fixed a part, re-assembled it, and got it running just in time for my son to get home from school and test it on the yard.
