Our Saturday

On Saturday we held Taylor's Eagle Court of Honor. We had a busy few weeks preparing for it. (And, boy, has the inside of my house suffered because of it.)

Joe wrote the program and prepared a PowerPoint presentation and pretty much organized everything. I took care of the food (chocolate fountain + other goodies) and made two slideshow presentations: a short 4-minute one for the actual ceremony and a longer one for the reception we held afterwards.

As his mother, I pinned the medal on his uniform. It was crooked.

And then Taylor gave a speech that he wrote. He did a wonderful job. I was so proud of him. (Carter, in the background, was the emcee for the Court of Honor as part of the Communications Merit Badge. Carter did a wonderful job, as well. And he was funny. We are still laughing at him.)

And, so ... it's official ...

I'm the mother of an Eagle Scout. (One of many future Eagle Scouts.)

congratulations. It is a lot of work. Our 13 year old just passed his board of review for Eagle so I/we have the court of honor to plan. although I'm hoping his older brother (15) gets going on his project so we can do a double....
