M's first Court of Honor

Last night was the first Court of Honor that M's Boy Scout troop has had since he joined. Since he was actually being awarded a rank, Scout, which is the first, very basic rank (strikes me as Boy Scout's version of the Bobcat badge), we all went.

M and the other new Scouts, waiting for awards:

D and I went up with M, as they want to award the parent a pin. I now have 3 Scout pins - for M making Scout rank, M's arrow of light and another I got as a den leader. M is jealous - he thinks the pins are way cooler than the patches he gets.

After the Court of Honor, they had an Eagle ceremony. We stayed to watch. It was pretty cool. I pointed out to M that the boy gets a pin for Eagle, as well as the parents. They wouldn't normally have an Eagle ceremony with the Court of Honor, but evidently they had been having a hard time scheduling the Eagle ceremony - the 2 boys earned their Eagles in December and January.
