Tonight Max was awarded his Arrow of Light, the last achievement before he becomes a Boy Scout.
But how can that be? It seems misnamed, this “Boy” Scout business. After all, it was just moments ago he was a Bobcat and truly a little boy. He seemed so old then. And now this. Leaving Cubs and setting foot on the path to Eagle makes him 6 parts a man.
My boy. My Scout.
So proud of you, Max.
I wish you could have seen my Max’s eyes when he saw these pictures on Facebook. He has a new hero: Max the Boy Scout!
This brings tears to my eyes… they grow up so fast… it is so hard to believe that we .gave a grandson old enough to be a Boy Scout
