After five years of cub scouting, yesterday was the day our boys advanced. I think most striking at this Blue and Gold banquet was the confidence the boys showed throughout. They were clearly the big men of the pack and cheered skits and other dens awards in their own fashion.
As you can see, they all chose the caffeinated soda when given the opportunity! We are not typically a soda family, but what a treat for him on his day :)

His Arrow of light award.
Next came his advancement.
And then I had another realization. How quickly they went from being the big kids to looking quite small again. All of that confidence they have developed should serve them well as they move forward into new waters.
