Second Eagle Scout in the Family

Following in his dad's footsteps, my nephew is the latest Eagle Scout in the family. We were very happy to drive down and be a part of the festivities. I don't guess I had realized that all three of my nephews are in the scouts. I can't get over how big all the boys are.
Looking proud and happy to get his Eagle Scout.
Nothing says family celebration like cake!
Youngest nephew.
Middle nephew and his cake. He cracks me up. He wants to be a writer, so I feel a weird kinship toward him.
And, Hot Rod. He couldn't wait to dig into that cake. I think I took about 100 pictures of the Eagle Scout ceremony. My former sister-in-law deemed me the family photographer, so I had a job. :) I think I did ok with it, too.

    I can't believe those boys are that old.

    Pardon me while I go kill myself.

    FWIW, there's a publishing company currently shilling for the National Eagle Scout Association, selling a directory of all the US Eagle Scouts they can track down. Details are at the NESA website.

    It's a bit steep @ $90, or $20 less for softcover, but I figure if I'm in it, I might as well get a copy...
