First Class Boy Scout

Our son has been in Boy Scouts for about a year and a half now and he LOVES it!!  He has learned so many great skills and has been on lots of fun outings.  We are blessed to be part of a troop that's affiliated with our Christian school, so we already know most of the families and get along great with the others.  Hubs has really gotten into it too - he's completed several kinds of training and is now an Assistant Scout Master.

It's amazing what they learn in Scouts - so much more than knots and lashings!  My son can use a knife and an axe, build a fire, plan and cook a meal, and soooo much more.  He's also certified in first aid and CPR.  He has further developed leadership skills and is learning how to work with many types of personalities.  We're very proud of what he's accomplished so far!


The kiddo just recently earned his First Class Rank {and a special new hat!} and had to give a speech to the audience at the Court of Honor.  He wrote the speech himself and delivered it very well!  I thought I would include the video here in case you're interested.  I think you'll have to really turn up the volume to hear it though.

Congrats kiddo on your new rank!!  We look forward to watching you learn and grow along the journey to becoming an Eagle Scout!

Do you have a Boy Scout or know any?

Have a blessed day friends!

Smiling in the sunshine,

  1. That is so cool. He did such a great job on his speech.
    Brad would love for the boys to get into something like that but with his schedule it makes it hard.
    Have a LOVELY day my friend.
