J’s Eagle Scout Court of Honor

My oldest son J got his Eagle Scout in December of 2011, but he just had his Eagle Scout Court of Honor this past weekend.  After finishing his requirements, he had to wait to get his requirements verified and then the COH pins etc. sent up to our Scoutmaster.

J and his fellow scout Zack had their COH together.  We have had several Eagle scouts in the past year or so, so they thought if they had it together it would be less of a burden for the scouting staff and since both kids have most of their  family out-of-town, they thought that they would have a better turnout with one ceremony held together.

I wasn’t sure what to expect since it was my first Eagle scout.  It turned out really nicely.

All Eagle Scouts in the room came forward to recite an Eagle Scout saying.

Awesome job J!  We are so proud of you!  Keep up the good work!
