HOORAY! He made it!!

 

Frankie is officially an Eagle Scout.

Ok, I know that having gotten this far, it wasn't likely that he WOULDN'T make Eagle.

However, it isn't over until it's over. What if there was a glitch that I hadn't noticed, that kept him from making Eagle????

I was having palpitations all day.

Tonight, Chris came over after scouts... he's really one of the family anyway. I gotta tell you, I love that kid like he's one of my own sons. Plus, he has the added bonus of having gone through this all before, because Chris is already an Eagle Scout. He was just as excited as I was.

Frankie called at some point and just said, "Yeah, I made it." I didn't have any details. But Chris and Nicky ran out and got a cake from Carvel. And I had a bottle of champagne in the fridge.

So we celebrated...!!!!! YAYAYAYAY!!!! :D

Sue, I'm glad I decided to read up on your blog today and find out about Frankie. That is great news! Congratulations Frankie! I have no idea why you were so nervous Sue, there was never a doubt in my mind he would make it and pass the review with flying colours!
Hope you enjoyed the champagne :)
