Tonight Bryan's Scout Troop held its quarterly Court of Honor. We were pleased to be in attendance tonight, as Bryan received 7 merit badges, and his Tenderfoot rank advancement.
Six of the merit badges were earned at the scout camp at Bear Lake. The seventh merit bagde, finger printing, was earned at a scout patrol meeting last month
Bryan had actually completed the requirements for Tenderfoot about a year ago, when he was in 11-year-old scouts. Unfortunately, they went through a series of different leaders, and some of the records weren't kept up as they should have been.
It has taken a few months for the regular 12-13 year-old scout troop to get things together. But I think things are getting back on right track now. Bryan has already completed many of the requirements for his 2nd Class and 1st Class scout ranks.
It looks like Bryan will be needing some more swimming lessons in order to pass off his BSA Swimmer certification, which is required for his 1st Class rank.
If all goes well, we hope to complete the requirements for these two ranks advancements by the next court of honor, around Christmas time.
