The Eagle Court of Honor

On September 11th, 2010
we finally had Cole's
Eagle Court of Honor
It took some doin' talking Cole into holding one in the first place.
But we have ways of persuasion
and finally he submitted allowing us to
go forward with the ceremony.
It was very nice.
A lot of family and friends came.

Cole had two mentor pins to give out.
One went to Eric Eaves,
who couldn't be there but we accepted the invitation on his behalf.
The other mentor pin went to his sister,
Emily Zoe
for keeping him on the right track and for putting up with him
when he was a ding bat.

She was surprised.
Surprised because she didn't even know
the significance of receiving a mentor pin
and she was surprised Cole acknowledged her hard work
to keep him from a life of crime.

Cole gave me the
mom pin
for the Eagle.
Dad got one too.
Rick presented Cole with the
Eagle pin and
Cole presented me with a dozen roses,
'cause I'm the mom of an Eagle now.

Only two more kids to go.
No sweat!

You may need to tutor us in your persuasion methods. We have 4 Eagels to look forward too, and let's not forget there is only 2 years between the oldest and youngest of the 4. It will be like an Eagle Scout marathon! Ugh.
