I don't understand Boy Scouts but I love my son.
For the past 10 years he's been a scout. At first I thought it was all about the uniform but it turns out that he loved the camping and getting merit badges and now he's an EAGLE. He got a special pin and a plaque and a framed certificate and letters of congratulations from politicians and a U.S. flag that flew over the capitol at his ceremony last week.
There were two kinds of barbeque served -- pork and venison -- and a decorated cake. It was a good time.
Jack, I'm proud of you.
