Cub Scout to Boy Scout

Today Zach crossed over to Boy Scouts. It was a happy and sad moment. Happy because he's worked so hard and deserves it, but sad because it feels like he was just in first grade - my little Tiger Cub.

The Blue and Gold was great. We always have the Order of the Arrow Indian Dancers - they are awesome!



Zach and RJ have been together since Tigers. Today they earned the highest honor in Cub Scouts, The Arrow of Light.






Since there were only two crossing into the Troop, the Boy Scouts built the bridge for them to cross. Each plank represents a Scout Core Value. There are 12, but my camera is slow to take pictures!





When I was a Girl Scout they said "Now I give you Brownie wings to you can fly to bigger things." They don't do that with the boys - they strip off their Cub Scout stuff and they walk to bridge to Troop. Once they get across they get the Boy Scout Scarf and epaulettes, which are red instead of blue. The coolest part - Erik is the Scoutmaster, so he got give him his scarf and cross him over!





It was an awesome day. The end of one journey and the beginning of another.

Until next time ~ Kris

I love your comments and I read them all. I'm not very good at replying to them though. It's one of my many downfalls. I hope you'll leave some anyway!
