In reality, the trail to Eagle started 5 years ago, when my son became a cub scout. He took to scouting about like he took to water, and he's never looked back. In cub scouts he earned his Bobcat, Wolf and Bear, then his Webelos, Compass patch and compass points. He got his Arrow of Light. He moved on to boy scouts and by the time he was 12 and a half, he was a Life Scout.
It is time to choose the Eagle Project. He has done his research, made phone calls and narrowed his project options down to two. This week, he is choosing his project and getting it approved. I can't wait to see what he's going to do. I know there's a lot of work ahead, but I wanted to celebrate just how far we've come since that very first day. Good job son. You make us proud.
