It's official

My son's Eagle Scout certificate finally came in today.  He was approved for his Eagle rank last May but it takes some time to get the official response.

I texted him a picture of the cert and he was very excited to become an official Eagle Scout.

I realize that I sometimes babble on about Sean, in that annoying "proud parent" way, but getting to Eagle is a pretty big deal as only a very small percent (4%) of Boy Scouts attain the rank.

Congratulations to you and your son! Very impressive, but especially so today. I was in the Scouts growing up in Hawaii - made it to Star - and was starting work on Life, but teen life got in the way and I dropped out. Best, Dean
