EAGLE SCOUT

What a wonderful night we had! My son, Elliott, received his official Eagle Scout award. He did his project last year, and due to several reasons, it has taken a year to final have the Court of Honor. It was such a Spirit-filled evening.



This was a culmination of many years of accomplishments.



Miracles occured in the time that Elliott was putting together his project. The Lord was present through the multitude of people who helped, and to them we are thankful. One brother passed away this past year. He was "...save Christ the greatest man [Elliott] knew". His wife will be honored with the Mentor pin.

One thing that made the night especially special was that it was combined with his cousin's Personal Progress award. This is the equivalent to scouting accomplishments for girls. Kaitie and Elliott have always been close, so this meant a lot to both of them.



As part of the ceremony, my husband and I were pinned.

Congratulations!!! Both of my sons are Eagles, the second one having his Court of Honor a year ago this week. Dear Hubby is an Eagle as well as his father. So I totally know what a precious and rewarding time it is for you and him.
