Cedar Badge

Ethan attended Cedar Badge at Island Park.  He had a lot of fun.  When we were coming home he looked disappointed.  I ask what was the matter and he said, "I didn't want to leave."  After I attended Woodbadge I totally understood what he meant.  He must have had the same kind of incredible experience that I did.  You won't understand until you go yourself.

Ethan's Summer

A Game of Mummy Peg

Ethan and Shane 
A day on the S. Fork
We made it!!!
Ethan and his scout troop went on a 100 mile journey in a weeks time.  Randy Drake was put in as Scout Leader only a couple of weeks before they went.  What an awesome guy.  They floated the Ho-Back, Climbed Wolf Mountain, Canoed the Palasade, Fished the S. Fork and biked from Hiese to Lewisville. They ate lots of good food that Uncle John & Chris cooked.   Ethan had a ton of fun and was exhausted when he got home.  Thanks to all of his leaders that helped.


The Owls!  Al, Andy, Enoch, Karen & Me
 I attended Woodbadge last month and it was an incredible experience!  I learned a lot about myself and how to be a better person and a better leader.  I will never forget the friends that I made and the feelings I had while I was there.  I gained a stronger testimony of the Scouting program.  

The Owls Flag
This was our flag we packed around.  I loved it!
