Our boys participate in the local Cub Scout program. Chip was a scout growing up and is involved with all three of their dens. This year Vash was the only Tiger Scout so he and Chip did the whole thing together. Vash attended Jesse’s Wolf Scout meetings so he could take part in the overall Pack activities.
The Scouts are almost always part of the local Memorial Day parades and this year was no different. This year the boys marched in the Ancram Memorial Day parade.
Next we were off to the Copake Park Community Center for the Cub Scout Moving Up Ceremony. This is where the boys received their awards and badges they earned during the year . . .
And “crossed over the bridge” to their new rank.
Vash went from being a Tiger Scout to being a Wolf Scout
Jesse went from being a Wolf Scout to a Bear Scout.
And Markus went from being a Bear Scout to a Webelo.
It was a nice ceremony followed by hot dogs, chip, salads, fruit and a red, white and blue cake. It was really a nice day and the boys were happy to hand off their old hats to their younger brothers. (Julian – a Webelo – handed his hat and bandana to Markus).
Finally, there are times that I get a picture of one of my boys that just takes my breath away – and today I got one of those of Markus – so I have to share it.
If Disney Channel ever discovers him he will be a heartthrob. I think he is just a beautiful child.
Happy Memorial Day everyone.
