Sometimes He Can Be Such a Bear
Number One has been a proud Boy Scout since he turned eight. Since his parents are a little slow to figure out how things go, he didn't complete his Wolf book as quickly as he would have liked. Once we figured out what we needed to be doing, though, it was full speed ahead. We helped him catch up, and he worked aggressively toward meeting his goals.
Finally, at this month's pack meeting, he was able to earn his new ranking. He's a BEAR! (That describes him well, too). The new book looks a little bit more challenging, but who's not up for a challenge around here, right? Our plan is to get through one section a month (maybe even two sections a month during the summer...if we're lucky) so that he'll be ready to rank up right on schedule next time.
I'm proud of my little Bear. He's come a long way over the past few years. I can't wait to see what's to come.
