Running the Show

Today was one of those crazy days. I have to admit to all my friends here in the valley that I have been praying for rain for the past two weeks so my two baseball games would cancel tonight and ease things up a bit. Honestly, I never expected it to be snow! It's not often that we get snow in the Salt Lake Valley in May, but it definitely does happen.

Sport had a Court of Honor tonight, but not just any Court of Honor... he was in charge of it. He had to have a script, acquire the treats, find speakers and prayers, flag ceremony, everything. And on top of all that, he had to conduct the meeting, all to earn the Eagle-required Communications merit badge.

You can guess who got the assignment for the treats, although when Prima Donna showed up on the train for help getting her phone fixed, I reassigned the cookie-making task to her and Baby Doll and I spent over an hour at Best Buy. (I know, the things I will do to get out of cooking...)

I also helped with the script, but beyond that he was on his own and he did a great job! Besides the 9 merit badges he was awarded, he also received his Life Scout rank advancement. I'm so proud of him and all of his hard work. It won't be long before he will have that elusive Eagle rank.

Great job, Sport!

Oh, I do remember those scouting days with our three boys. This brought back memoris. Way to go Sport on earning all those merit badges. That Eagle is so worth the work. It looks like it all came together as it always does. Hugs for all!
