Eagle Scout Ceremony This Saturday

Important event for Isaac



Our son's Eagle Scout award ceremony will be held on Saturday afternoon. It's a major achievement for a Boy Scout to earn his Eagle badge, so this is a special event for Isaac. I'll be busy getting things together for the next few days. I can't say when or if I'll be posting to the blog, but I rarely abandon Prairie Bluestem completely. :)

Thanks, Limey. And thanks for the very cool postcard, by the way. It was a nice surprise. :)

Eagle Scout is a considerable achievement. It is a good predictor of future accomplishment and says much about Isaac's character. Please congratulate him for me. His success speaks well of his parents, too.

Thanks PT. I think both Isaac and his sister are going to turn out all right.

Personally, I believe that intensive mothering has helped them along, but they might have their own opinions about that. ;)

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.
