Arrow of Light post

Thanks to those who resent Bernadette Curry's post to me.
I have a son who just joined Webelos in early December. He's nearly completed the requirements for his Webelo badge (all he really has to do is wait for his three-month mark), and has about half the requirements finished for Arrow of Light. This from a boy who has been difficult for me to motivate--he seems to march to his own drummer. However, his older brother's Scoutmaster told him that if he completes his Arrow of Light by the end of May, he can join the troop and go on the troop's summer campout in July. I've never seen him so fired up about anything!
As for first Eagle--his brother is giving him (and everyone else) a run for their money. The troop is only a year old, and has just a handful of First-Class scouts, none higher. My oldest son joined the troop in early December and will have his Tenderfoot rank by the end of this week. Even his Scoutmaster has told the troop that they'll have to hustle to keep up with him.
And then there's my Tiger Cub, who in two months has caught up with the rest of his den. . .
But I'd better stop bragging. :-) I can't help it, though--I'm just so proud of them, and so happy to see them enjoying Scouting so much.
