Happy (Scout) Mother’s Day!

Before the ceremony a couple of weeks ago I asked the Eagle candidates and their parents to step into a side room for a minute.
I hand each family a velvet covered box.
“We’ll have mom practice pinning the Eagle medal on their son’s left pocket flap first” I announce.
Three moms pick up an Eagle medal and pin it on their son.
“It’s not as easy as it looks, is it?” one laughs as her husband bends down to pick up a fumbled pin back off the carpet.
“No, it isn’t,” I reply “that’s why we have this little rehearsal.”
Not as easy as it looks? That’s an understatement.
Happy Mother’s Day!
