My new friend gave to me...
I love candles and I don't have these scents yet (spiced cider and cinnamon), they will be lit today. Thank you Fabulous Mom!!
Yesterday was the Eagle board of review for my son and we were all so nervous. He had practiced answering a variety of questions and going over his whole scouting career and merit badges and every time he showed leadership. Several prayers were said to help him do his best and for it to go well. And, I have to tell you it could not have gone better.
They "grilled" him for 40 minutes with just him and his scout leader, and then they asked to speak to me and the hubs for a few minutes. They were so impressed with him and spent the whole time telling us their impressions of his complete honesty and integrity. He is a very genuine person and it was so wonderful to have the board see that. It was one of those "mom is gonna start crying now" moments! So they eagerly recommended him as a candidate for the Eagle Rank and now it just has to go to National and then it will be official. Here he is posing with us after the review. We couldn't be prouder of our "miracle" son. I know when we actually have his Eagle Court of Honor, I will probably lose it, and that's okay. :) And as a side note, I LOVE that we're not the ginormous parents in this picture anymore!
