Crossing Over

It took ALOT of pushing, but this boy earned the Arrow of Light and Crossed over into a Boy Scout Troop! The boys in den 19, gathered for their last activity...creating their arrow of light for the ceremony. It was bittersweet, these boys have been together since 1st grade and now will move on to different troops.

Blake and Dad got to make an "Out of This World Dessert" for the ceremony. They decided on a "Man on the Moonpie" dessert.

We attended the Blue and Gold Banquet, it was a wonderful tribute to the boys. It almost made me cry, to see all the pictures of when they were little and of all they have accomplished. The Indian tribe came to assist them with the "crossing of the bridge"...the room was dark, the bongo drum started beating, and out they came to silently cross them over, it's an event that I will not forget. They made it very special for them! We are so proud of him, and excited that he decided to give Boy Scouts a chance.
