Promotion

Billy received his Arrow of Light this past week.

Waiting for the ceremony to begin.

And still waiting.

It got pretty chilly.

Some didn’t mind waiting so much.

She certainly didn’t.
Small to tall.

My parents’ oldest and youngest grandsons.
Almost 15 and almost 6.
He has pretty intense eyes.

The Boy Scouts helped with the ceremony.
Fritz is blinded by the light.

The fire made the waiting in the freezing cold bearable.
But they had to move when it was time for the ceremony.

The Boy Scouts led the blindfolded Webelos over.

Awaiting their Arrow of Light.
The ceremony was very solemn.

Receiving the Arrow of Light.

Pinning the mother’s pin on.

Proud mama.

Happy Scout.

The den and leaders.

They told us to come early, and then they started late.  The ceremony was about 10 minutes long.  But it was worth it.

In 2 weeks, I will have 2 Boy Scouts and 0 Cub Scouts.  In the fall, we start the Cub Scout journey all over again with Peter.

Many thanks to my sister for taking the pictures.

  1. I'm a really cranky waiter. 🙂

    But congratulations to your new little boy scout!

  2. Congrats to your son on the Arrow of Light — the highest honor in Cub Scouts. Remember he can wear that award on his Boy Scout uniform.

    Waiting is never easy — but glad it went well.

  3. Congratulations! The Arrow of Light is a BIG deal. You have good reason to be proud.
    Wishing him luck on his Scouting trail–all the way to Eagle.
