Our Newest Boy Scout!

On Saturday Nathaniel crossed over from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts. The Blue and Gold Ceremony was very nice, and happily I was far less emotional this time around. Perhaps by the time Caleb crosses over, I won't cry at all. ;)
Last time with these boys as a pack.

Nathaniel receiving the "Super 20 emblem".  He's the first of the Webelos in  the pack's memory  to achieve this award for completing all 20 of the activity badges.

Because he received this award, he had rock star like status with the  Webelos 1 boys. They kept following him around mentioning that they were going to try to do just what Nathaniel had done. It was very cute.

The Webelos 2 boys received the Arrow of Light award before crossing over.

Caleb was the one taking pictures for a while. Some of them were a little "artsy" for my taste

Nathaniel was reluctant to cross over the bridge.

Benjamin accepted Nathaniel into Troop 19 when he finally reached the other side.

And then Lilyanna ran over the bridge.

And here are the boys who made it through to the end. With arrows. Arrows make everything cooler.

See? Arrows are the answer.

Todd and me with our newest Boy Scout. I manage to look awful at these things. It's a gift, people.
 We are very proud of Nathaniel for all of the work he did to get to this point. We are very grateful to all of the leaders who helped him get here, too. We certainly could not have done it without them.
