“magically” turned into this guy.

He’s our family’s first Eagle Scout.

    Congratulations to Dylan!

    It seems like just yesterday Alex was fidgeting about his Pinewood Derby car. Two weeks ago he was up on a "High Adventure" trip to Boundary Waters in Minnesota canoeing for a week.

    Time speeds by in the blink of an eye.

    Awfully impressive! I never made it past Tenderfoot, so I'll just say, "I'm humbled."

  • NukeDad August 14, 2009, 3:58 am

    Congrats! To both of you! I'm new to the game (year 2 starts in a month), but I know what a huge commitment it is for all involved.

    Well done! I had the honor of being the master of ceremonies at our Troop's latest Eagle Court of Honor just last week.

    Always good to see another Scout reach the pinnacle. Hopefully my son will do in the next few years.
