Several times a year the Boy Scouts host a Court of Honor ceremony to award achievements that the boys have completed. This was the first time we had attended a ceremony and Reese was to receive multiple awards. First, he received his Tenderfoot Badge. Next it was his First Class badge. These are the first two ranks on his way to Eagle Scout. The ranks are Tenderfoot, First Class, Second Class, Star, Life and Eagle.
I was in for a surprise when they called the mothers of the scouts onto the stage. Reese had to use the microphone to thank me for something I do that helps him with scouts. He said he was thankful for sewing on all his badges. Then he "pinned" me with the mother's pins for the two ranks he received. Finally, my favorite part, he had to give me a big kiss!
I'm proud of my Boy Scout!
