I'm on my way to a funeral for an Eagle Scout who served in Scouting for over 60 years. I can't even begin to imagine how many lives he's touched in that time. All I know is he helped me learn how to Scout "right," and he blessed my son with many grandfatherly conversations and gifts. That bald bird means much to many people, and I admire anyone who still calls themselves one!

Thanks for all the compliments, you guys (gals too!) but this is really his deal! I was lucky enough to walk beside him for his Scout journey, but he did the work and planning.
Here's the other crazy thing...He is 15 right now and a senior in high school...He will be 16 when he graduates. We are currently looking at colleges (meet with an admissions guy for Patrick Henry College on Monday) and I'm terrified of the thought of my 16 year old going off to college 3000 miles away!
Just one little Smurf against the world....I feel sorry for you World! BOOM, suckas!
First of all Great Job and Congratulations to your son, my eagle has also spread his wings .....he is well prepared to face all that is laid before him. Trust he has made mistakes and has learned from them and will make new ones with or without you next to him.
