I'm proud to announce.....

...that my youngest son Christopher passed his district board of review and was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout.

Christopher started in Scouts as a Tiger Cub eleven years ago and was awarded his Eagle rank on Wednesday, June 27th, 2007. His mother and I and his two brothers (both Eagle Scouts) are very proud of him.

Is that called a "convocation" of eagles?

Congrats.

hey congratulations. to him for doing it and to you for putting up with it.

my oldest son will be a webelos 2 this year. in some way i hope he stays with it and goes on to Eagle scout be other times it is a PITA for me. he has be in since Tigers too and i was thinking " great one more year and i will be done with these kids" then his little brother (3 years younger) decided HE wants to be in Cub Scouts :chair:

ah, at times i like it tho. i help out alot with the kids and help the den leader. the kids see me as the cool uncle who will show them how to blow stuff up. nothing like teaching 10 year olds how to make a MRE bomb.

Congrats, couple of my friends are the rank before eagle scout but never got eagle scout for some reason.

Wish I could have done scouts, eagle scouts are like set for life so I heard?

Thanks to all of you for your kind words.

Hey Larp, all I can say is that it is what you make of it. We were a scouting family for about 12 years. My wife was a cub den leader twice and I was a webelo leader for two separate groups and did a couple of years as cubmaster. I also served as Committee chairman, Scoutmaster, and Asst. Scoutmaster for our troop. We put together a Venture group (13 and older) that did all sorts of very cool stuff, like Scuba, Rock Climbing, Sailing on tall ships, and long term backpack trips that I was the leader for. The bond I have with my boys is very strong and the things we've done together are things that most dads only dream of doing with their sons. It's something I would strongly recommend to anyone. I also made some life long friends from scouts. My favorite wheeling buddy was one of my scouts from about seven years ago. I helped him get his Eagle, he helped me lift my Jeep and teaches me new stuff every time we go wheelin'.

As to having it made for life, I'm not sure about that. But I do know that if you enter the military, your Eagle will get you in two pay grades higher. My oldest son is in paramedic school, he got his first job working for an ambulance company without having to interview. They hired him based on his Eagle. My other two are both life guards again this summer. All three use skills they learned in scouts for work. I'm pretty proud of them on a regular basis.

Thats great, congradulations!! I really regret not finishing scouts when I was younger, but I was doing too many activities at one time, and scouts around here probably isnt the same as yours. Around here, atleast when I was growing up, it was camping in someones backyard, bsing with your buds you see everyday anyway

That really is great that he went all the way though, and learned many things along the way. Congradulations again, hopefully I can have that kind of relationship with a family of my own one day!
