After a couple stressful days and the help of a lot of really awesome people in our lives, we were able to put together a simple, yet wonderful ceremony for Michael. There were a lot of tears, that's for sure. With Kevin leaving so soon emotions are running real high.
Scouting is a big part of our lives, we know that all the things the boys learn and the experiences they have will help them in their future. I truly believe that Michael is who he is because of the standards and values that he has learned through Boy Scouts.
The awesome cake a friend of mine made in VERY short notice. She's amazing!
Mom's note: Due to Army life such as Drill Sergeant duty and deployments Kevin wasn't able to participate, not because he didn't want to.
Yes I'm crying...he's my baby!
This pictures make me laugh...Michael is so skinny! Eat more cake Michael!
Michael's Eagle Award. Another interesting side note...that is Kevin's Life Rank from when he was a Boy Scout!
