I’m not a great blogger, but it helps me to get a few thoughts down occasionally.
I’ve had a few exciting things happen, this being one of them. When I reluctantly joined Boy Scouts in 2002, I did it for my boys. They begged incessantly for weeks before I caved, mostly to shut them up. Now here we’re are ten years later and my boys are grown and I’m still a Scouter.
None of my sons earned Eagle Scout. I’m not totally disappointed though. Because their dad wasn’t around as much as he could have been, Scouting offered some terrific male role models and my sons are better men because of it. For me, that is more satisfying than any award they could have earned.
