Eagle Sunday

With much relief, I say "Thank goodness it's done!" I officially have an Eagle Scout.  He has been done with his project since 2007 and actually got the award in 2008, but with changes in leadership it took this long to get around to having his Court of Honor.  I would have been relieved to not have had to do it at all.  It's like hosting a big party, and we all know how I have social anxieties.  But, I couldn't do that to Miguel.  He has had some great scout leaders who were good mentors pushing him along the way.  I only pushed him through the write up.  Yeah, that sucked!

I put together a movie of his life.  (Mom's love to embarrass their kids.)  I also put together a display of awards and things that he has gotten over the years at school and scouts.  I'm not much for fluff, so this was a real stretch.  Displays?  Centerpieces?  Treats?  Programs?  Invitations?  Oh, pish posh!  Simplicity is my mantra...

Here are some picture highlights...

Please tell me I don't look old enough to have a 16 and 17 year old.  I was so pregnant when I was twelve. 


  1. Congratulations! Of course you had them when you were an infant yourself!!! My only boy is six, so I have a couple of years before the scout thing starts. My FIL is a professional Scout, so we are indoctrinated!!!

  2. You totally don't look old enough to have a 16 and 17 year old.

    A big Congrats to Miguel on getting his Eagle Scout!

  3. Congratulations!!! That's a big deal!!!! My son is almost 12 and his birth dad makes it impossible for him to go to wed meetings. He wants to earn it but I'm not sure how that will work out. I know it takes a lot of work. You must feel really proud!


Always happy to hear from you! Comments make my day, just please keep them uplifting and positive. Thanks for stopping by!
