It was an evening for a lot of smiles as Nick and Jason took stage center for their induction into the order of Eagle Scout.
Cupcakes forming an American flag adorned the refreshment table. I see 20 stars. Are there not 50 states in the Union?
Oh yeah; but for the purpose of decoration this flag has only 20. For the sake of curiosity though, I found that Mississippi was the 20th state admitted to the Union, December 10, 1817. Interesting, huh?
Somehow Rachel always seems to find her way to the forefront of any gathering. Ha ha. I think she takes after her grandmother, don't you?
|Matt seems a little shy in this picture, but believe me, he is not.|
|Erin, Mike, Jenna & Katie wait anxiously for the court to convene.|
Nick is all smiles, and deservedly so. Greg, our college student earned his Eagle badge just last year.
Greg has the honor to be the first of my offspring to sit in the eagles nest. This is a first in the history of my family. I am so proud of him. Neither myself nor his father will ever have this privilege because we didn't earn the right.
|Jason knows how to set a good example, and Matt is really "eating it up."|
One thing that really impressed me was the number of peers that were supporting Nick and Jason. This photo show only a few in attendance.
