Eagle Scout???

Tonight's the big night... Frankie's Board of Review for Eagle.
Tonight's the night that he has to be interviewed by several members of the District Committee, to see if he is truly qualified to become an Eagle Scout.

There have been SO MANY steps along the way to get to this point.
He's learned all of his skills - camping skills, knot tying skills, compass skills, first aid skills.
He's earned all of his ranks, from the basic "Scout" through "Life."
He's done countless hours of volunteer work.
He's had leadership positions to help run the troop.
He's earned 34 badges, ranging from easy - Basket Weaving - to complicated - Personal Management - to really challenging - Cycling. His favorite may have been Nuclear Energy, or Engineering, or Architecture.
He's completed a complex service project, proving that he has the skills to organize and direct a huge undertaking. His project was the Toy Drive for Goryeb Children's Hospital.

Tonight is the final step -- his interview.

Keep your fingers crossed!!!
