Eagle Project

TE has been working towards his Eagle Rank in the Boy Scouts of America. It involves a serious project, where the boy plans the project in writing, leads in the implementation of it, and follows up with a written report. It's a big deal.

The planning stage has been done for a few weeks. He chose to put in a permanent fire pit and benches at our church. For the last two weekends, he has lead other scouts in the actual construction.

Two Saturdays ago, they built 5 benches from scratch in our garage.

Three generations of scouts.

Last Saturday, he lead the installation of the benches and firepit.

It looks so simple like this. But, let me tell you, it was A LOT OF WORK! TE did a great job of planning and leading and everything went off smoothly. I'm so proud of him.

The men of the church still have a little work left to do with trimming some of the brush nearby and putting down more rock around the pit and benches. That will happen this Saturday. I'll probably take another picture or two of the finished product.

Then it's on to the final write-up....One more big hurdle.

Blessings to you,

How much more could we possibly have in common? Noah earned his Eagle rank last summer and Samuel is (hopefully) going to get his project done before the snow hits. Rusty just needs to complete his write up and one merit badge.

I love the three generation photo.

Congratulations to your son!
