Last night was the March Court of Honor for Delaney at Scouts. He’s had a quiet year, but we’ve made steady progress.
We missed the December Court because of a school concert, so he had a few badges roll over, but last night he received:
- Second Class Rank
- Aviation Merit Badge
- Metalworking Merit Badge
- Space Exploration Merit Badge
- Law Merit Badge
It was pretty cool, and he got to pin the 2nd class pin on the Mom’s ribbon that I wore. I had forgotten it for the July Court, so this was the first time he got to do that.
It was nice, and I’m definitely proud of his progress. After a year in Boy Scouts (and a month), he’s earned:
- 3 ranks
- 7 merit badges, and close to an 8th
That’s great progress, and better than I expected. We were hoping for 2 ranks and 6 badges, so he’s moving along nicely. There were three Eagles recognized as well, which is amazing. I think this troop has a better than average record of getting kids through and it seems that Delaney is well on his way.
